In this image you can
see the Ship Control Console on the right edge. In the center background
is the Ballast Control Panel (BCP). The 2 silver boxes above the BCP
with tubes entering each side (just below the red and yellow alarm switches)
are the Emergency Blow Actuators.

Here is the mock-up of
the Crews Mess. This is reportedly from the USS Tepang.
