When I was working at IBM Bermuda (as sort of an intern), they used a 360/20
as their main service bureau machine. (I'm pretty sure it was a /20, and not a
/30.) It had a card reader/punch, 4 (IIRC) tape drives, and a 1403 printer.

They had just gotten in a System/3, to replace it, but only one client had
transitioned to using it.
