    Here's a picture of it in the dock building, courtesy of MiceChat's very own Daveland: DAVELAND MARK TWAIN PHOTO (It's visible just above the "davelandweb.com" tag.)

    That's a Wurlitzer Style LX orchestrionn, not a calliope. This is a calliope http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...Tp7xE0KMnxQjqg The "X" designation that it is fitted with a automatic roll changer allowing it to play six, six tune rolls, as opposed to the Style L which had the long tune roll frame that played a ten tune roll. This instrument had been acquired by Walt Disney when he bought the collection of a LA area collector .

    Here is the model of instrument that the music was recorded from. To my knowledge, it is still owned by Disney.

    In the 1950's and 60's there was an actual calliope in the covered queue area on the Mark Twain dock. It played songs constantly. In the 1970's it was falling apart due to exposure to the elements and it was replaced with a 60 minute recording of the original machine. But then in the late 1990's that 70's era analog recording fell into disrepair and the Pressler/Harriss era didn't have money to fix it. The recording was recently redone in digital format, and it now plays in the queue area via new speakers. It's a throwback to the 1950's, with a stop in the 1970's.

    This is the actual Mark Twain Riverboat in Hannibal, Missouri. It features calliope music as well.

    The old calliope music was there very early on (1950s) and was restored a few years ago.
