    I love seeing and listening to those old steam organs. If you can make it next year FC the miniature railway at Mizens Farm, Woking has an annual event called Ocktoberfest with lots of visiting organs. It can't be that far from you, I love em.

        I love steam engines and organs . They do hold a steam fair near to where I live . I have been meaning to visit it for the last 20 years , maybe next year !
        I have visited this monster 2500 horse power steam engine . One of the largest working ones in the world . It is an amazing site when it is working under steam , they even let us toot the horn. It is in Trencherfield mill Wigan.

          Brings back memories of the Son Morro Hotel in Majorca when I was about 11 or 12. All of the waiters dressed in white flaired trousers thinking they were gods gift dancing to it.

          Got home and mum asked a workmate to go and buy the single from the local record shop. Said workmate came back with the single, not best pleased at the description of the lyrics that she'd asked for - something about a "Russian submarine"
