Luscombe Valley Non-Steam

The main, non-steam powered item (though related to the use of steam engines) is a miniature fairground organ.

This 48 key organ was commissioned and built in 1999 by Paul McCarthy of Basingstoke.

It has a wonderful tone and a library of over eight hours of music.

This photo taken at Pecorama near Beer in Devon shows the Foden attached to the organ in matching colours. The wonderful background is Lyme Bay.
