Quote from: flared_ophicleide on May 14, 2012, 01:16:37 AMThis may be a bit off-the-wall, but I was watching the Beatles' HELP! movie, and early on, we see Paul McCartney playing a 3-manual electronic theatre, Art-Deco-style. My first guess was that it was a Compton, possibly an Electrone.By chance, has anybody seen this movie?

Quote from: Barrie Davis on May 14, 2012, 07:40:18 PMThe late Charles Lloyd who was organist at Worfield in Shropshire had a large minature railway in the grounds of his house, he used to get back from church and in between services and open the line to the public.
