I ran across this the other day while perusing a copy of the option
module list. 
These letter designations define different "pre-packaged" systems.
The "11T55" (actually all 11T's) are equipped with 1 or more rk05's.
For example, the description of an 11T55-BA is:
11/55-BA, FP11-C, RK11J-DE, RK05J-AA, 120V 60HZ.
The 11/55-BA has an LA36 and an 11/55-CA;
The 11/55-CA has
2 - MS11-CC (Controller for bipolar memory)
8 - MS11-AP (4k bipolar memory cards)
KB11-D, DL11-W, KT11-CD, and M9312.
An 11/55-CE is the above without the bipolar memory.
 This is a PDF file of the april 1983 option module list. It's on
in the dec/modules directory. And it's almost 85MB long.
