The restoration of pneumatic actions has its problems. It is certainly not as simple as electrification. It also requires more regular attention and adjustment, not least because the instruments are subjected to much more damaging heating today than they would have experienced when they were built. Setting up a pneumatic action is also more demanding than an electric or electro-pneumatic action.
Well, I'm not really an organist but I have tinkered around on organs of all action types, backfall trackers, suspended trackers, Barker lever, Willis floating lever, pressure and exhaust pneumatics, electro-pneumatic and pure electric. I can't say that I've ever really noticed a tubular pneumatic action giving any more 'feel' than an electro-pneumatic action.
