Database Manager on July 04, 2014:

Updated through online information from John Speller. -- The console was solid-stated in 2009 by Quimby Pipe Organs, Inc., making use of the original Aeolian stop-keys. The rest of the original equipment was carefully stored in the church, and the original remote actions and relays remain in place, though out of use.
