and   for    horrible  deep level  maint.  I would imagine  they  would be  
they look  like  something too  complex to let   operations level  people  
diddle  with...   
 but  are  these  used with exactly  WHICH   Honeywell  system?  If  we are 
 going to  display them need to tell the right story in the museum.

The  panels would be pretty much un-used Unlike 360 panels these were 
hidden behind  doors for most of the time. Assuming the work the same on a 
Multics box as on  a regular L66/DPS box the only time they were really used was 
if you split a 2  x CPU system into 2 x 1 CPU system, or changed the memory 
configuration from  interleaved to non-interleaved. Pretty sure you could IPL 
from the  console.
