Pneumatic tubing

Split leather visible on one of the ribs of this reservoir (which supplies the Pedal Trombone and Double Diapason)
This reservoir is in relatively good condition, others in the organ are literally held together with duct tape!

Temporary repairs on another of the reservoirs

The reservoir in located beneath the organ in the blower room. As you can see, it is held together with duct tape!

Part of a recently re-leathered reservoir.
This reservoir failed catastrophically in 2018 and was releathered in order to keep the organ playing.

Weights on the Tuba/Tromba reservoir

Yet more pneumatic tubing.
Before the conversion to Electro-Pneumatic action in 1953, there were miles and miles of tubing like this running throughout the organ.

Pneumatic tubes for the Swell Wald Flute stop, which was added later on a chest above the Vox Humana, at the back of the Swell box

Change-over machine for the Tromba
This converts the electrical signals from the console into pneumatic "puffs" of air which inflate motors that open the pallets and admit air to the pipes

Power motors on the Tromba chest
Pneumatic tubing (from the change-over machine) visible below

Redundant ventil for the Tromba chest
A patch is visible on the left where the original leather had perished

Part of the "purse" action for the Choir organ - another part of the organ's action that has only been partially converted from Tubular-Pneumatic to Electro-Pneumatic.
These will be replaced with lever-arm magnets when the organ is rebuilt
