    this quite an impressive listing of organ works. I assume from the photograph the this instrument is an older style tracker instrument. Where is Albury located? Best wishes for the remaining season to be successful and rounding up all of those choir members,
    Take care,

      Hi Lloyd. That is the actual instrument. The console is located downstairs. The facade pipes are unfortunately incomplete and not speaking currently. It is the old 8′ Open Diapason. Albury is located on the border of NSW and Victoria in Australia. You can find more info on the organ here:

      Thanks for your wishes!
