Fair Organ in Hasbro "Roller Coaster Tycoon"
By Douglas Bush

Further to yesterdays posting concerning CJMO recordings of fair organs
and the game "Roller Coaster Tycoon".  MMDer Bjorn Isebaert kindly
supplied the following titles to the tunes played by the fair organ
in the game:

 - Strauss waltz medley
 - Dichter und Bauer
 - Die Regimentskinder
 - Geschichten aus dem Wienerwald
 - The Blond Sailor

All these tunes appear on the CJMO recordings of the 69-keyless Voigt
organ formerly at Bressingham steam museum.  As such it is probable that
this is indeed the organ heard in the game.

For information, I believe that this Voigt in now in mainland Europe,
although I understand that it has recently been altered from its
original specification.
