Anyone want to part with a DEC MXV11-B (M7195) and/or M8012 (BDV11)?

(The KDF11-A, RLV12, and MLSI-SCM11 came in the backplane, but I’m hesitant to interpret that as ‘these were configured together in this pattern” rather than “these happened to fit in here for storage.”)

I have an ~ 30 page manual for the MDB MLSI-BA11-600 series chassis, if there is something that might be answered from that.
