Hauptwerk on left side. Positiv and Pedal on right side. Chancel Trompette en Chamade projecting from front of each case directly beneath facade pipes. Duplicate or 'slave' pistons allow playing of Chancel organ from Gallery console. Gallery organ entirely straight...absolutley no borrowing, extensions, or unification.
