There is also appears to be a 2107 (DS8100) in there, but it looks like all the drives have been pulled.
That may be recoverable more easily...

What was the price tag on all of this stuff?

There appears to be a Z system in the photos.  Image035.jpg is a photo
showing the open system bay, and the HMC laptop.  It is beyond critical
that that laptop be carefully preserved and handled, as that will be the
difference between junk and possibly turning it on and running it again.

The 3490 numbers refer to the tape library in the image025.jpg.

Please make sure that Dave McGuire has seen this before they destroy
anything, as he is making a serious effort to restore a couple of

I think his current system is contemporary with the mainframe hiere.

The 3174-1 is almost certainly a channel attached unit, probably with
bus / tag to this unit.  I don't know of a conversion to run the
3174-1's off anything but copper, but there may be escon boxes to be
preserved that do this if it isn't copper bus / tag cable sets.

I'd love a couple of coax terminals but not the entire lot if possible.
I have a couple of 3174-63's that one or two would go nicely with for
Hercules use.


Thanks, Jim.  I have let them know to preserve the laptop, and asked for a
price for the system.
