The "Köln" Class Ships like the SS Cassel

The awning deck steamers of the "Köln " class for the Baltimore and Galveston lines represent an entirely different type. The steamers of the " Köln " class which comprise the " Köln," " Frankfurt," " Hannover," " Cassel," "Breslau," " Chemnitz," and " Brandenburg," represent a type that corresponds with the particular requirements of the service for which they were built.

While possessing limited cabin accommodation, they have ample space for the conveyance of many steerage passengers and the transport of large quantities of grain and cotton.

These new steamers, 136 meters long, 15 meters wide, 13 meters deep, and with a carrying capacity of 8,850 tons, can accommodate 50 cabins and about 1,600 steerage passengers.

The arrangements for cabin passengers are very comfortable. The sleeping accommodation is in no way inferior in point of comfort to that on the express steamers. The arrangements for steerage passengers have also received particular attention.

Apart from the lofty sections having large and numerous ports with ample light, there are two sections of the main deck, outside cabins for 4 to 10 persons.

For the expeditious handling of the 11,000 cubic meters of cargo that can be stowed away in these ships, there are six hatches with ten steam winches and 18 derricks. The machinery consists of two sets of triple expansion engines of 3,300 indicated H. P., capable of giving a speed of 13 knots.

To render these steamers suitable for transporting troops, they were provided with the necessary arrangements under the experience gained during the China expedition.
