ROFL! Yes, this is mine. :) Yes, good point about the logotype; it'

Yes, that one is clearly smaller, a single-width rack, like the one
housing the TE-16 in my 11/70 system. It's a separate rack with a
cableway on the right, and it's bolted to the main (double-wide) 11/70 rack.

It's not a huge system peripherals-wise, but it has two memory
chassis. And those power supplies are HEAVY!
