If there was one ship that I could compare the Titanic to more than any other, the Great Eastern would be it. Despite the different ways their lives ended as well as the difference in how long each ship lived, both ships were titans for their times and both were known for their disastrous careers.

I always fancy that the great Eastern is the predecessor of all superliners

The Great Eastern carried a suit of sail, but I don't think it was ever used.  She was, in many respects, a transitional design.  Sail and steam, paddles and a screw.  Titanic was another transitional design.  Three screws, two powered by the biggest reciprocating steam engines ever designed for a ship, with the center screw driven by one of the first large marine turbines, using the low-pressure exhaust from the piston engines. It was a cool idea, that salvaged some power that would otherwise have been dumped into the condensers.

P.S.: Anybody know how to tell Firefox's spellchecker to use U.S. conventions?  It wants to see that "center" spelled "centre."

Titanic sank, The Great Eastern was broken up. The Great Western was also broken up; but the Great Britain still survives today.

I think the Great Britain was owned by the Great Western Railway.

originally she was but  she was bought by the great shipping lines before being used to lay the transatlantic cable.
