Mine is all pneumatic. I haven't ever heard of an electric one.

They exist apparently, and after a bit of a dig I've come across one.

No mention of mercury-dip contacts, but mention of silver contacts and relay boxes etc.

It probably means that the one I stumbled across in my youth may have been unique in the UK.

I have the Tibia, but the Diaphone is on the other side of the harbour just below the light-house, so ensemble is difficult.

Only on the other side of the harbour, I would have thought. :angry:

There has been quite a lot written about Hope-Jones's innovations in the way of dividing an organ between various locations and providing a detached console. I like to see mine as the logical outcome of such ingenuity. The light-house is about a mile away as the gull flies (a lot further by road, as the harbour gets in the way), so a console in the Old Ship Tavern would seem to be a reasonable compromise.
