The expansion bay will hold two cards.  I can look
to see if I can find a spare empty one.  I use mine
for holders for my Overland tape cards, if you
know how big they are.  There are 2 AT slots
in the thing.

There was also a tape backup that was made that
I have a specimen of, but no software on the box
or idea what controller or tapes it takes.  It is physically
the same size as the expansion box.

I will not be able to look till this weekend, but will
give you an answer by the end of the holiday.
