WHile I'm open to conspiracies regarding the sinking of the Titanic. I can easily tell from photos of the Titanic on it's maiden voyage as it's leaving port with the passengers on board that it is indeed the titanic.
The rear area of the promenade deck is different from the olympic. Look at the side of the boat. The Promenade deck is the first one below the funnels and top deck (whatever that would be called) It has large square windows and is semi covered big and white. THe olympics promenade deck is exposed or open the entire way through. THe titanic is semi covered (I guess to mitigate wind for the passengers strolling on the promenade) through about 2/3 of it's promenade deck. THe two ships look distinctively different.
THe modifications to switch the two boats would take a lot of construction two switch around the two superstructures.
THe boat leaving port has the titanics promenade the wreckage has titanics promenade. The titanic promenade design was used again on the Brittanic (3rd ship in the series) But not the olympic.
You wouldn't have to see the stern of the ship to notice the difference you could easily see the difference betweenthe two ships from several blocks away.

Look, your not listening or something.....
For interest, the Olympic as scrapped in the 1930s and many of her fittings wound up at auction, and can be found at places such as the White Swan hotel in Alnwick, and, until recently, the Crown Paint HQ in the North of England, The wood pannelling has the number "400" inscribed on the back - the Olympic's yard number (Titanic's was 401).
