Notes: The stop list published in THE TRACKER puts the Orchestral at home on Manual I.  However, the February 1931 issue of THE DIAPASON says the Orchestral is at home on Manual III.  The latter seems to match the console photo in THE TRACKER, because it shows the two Orchestral divisions in the left stop jamb, usually the position for stops at home on Manual III.
