PEK2013 is a II/11 Oberlinger tracker action organ installed in the Central Conservatory of Music, Beijing, in 2013. It is apparently located in a room on the 14th floor of a building, making it difficult to even know about, let alone access, unless one is a student or staff member of the school.

It is not clear if the Kleingedackt in the Pedal is borrowed from Manual II, in which case it would really be a II/10 practice organ. Nonetheless, it was one of the first pipe organs installed in a music school in Mainland China, and of some historic note as a result.
