Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

"Dedicated 26 Nov 1950. Entirely enclosed in a swell box except for the 16' pedal Bourdon. 579 pipes. Fa?ade pipes not-speaking. In 1958 an explosion of a tank car in the nearby rail yard damaged the church structure, blowing out all of the windows and causing all of the Maas Cathedral chimes hanging within the Swell Box to fall down on top of the pipes, seriously damaging them. These were straightened out as best as possible by the service personnel from Kilgen."
