I have an RL02 labelled up "VAX8600 Console" or similar, that came with
my PDP-11/73 that originally belonged to Aberdeen College of
Agriculture. This may tie in with Aberdeen Uni having a 20..
I doubt the -20 was at RGIT - they had a Honeywell among others, and I
missed a couple of PDP-8s before they hit the skip around 15 years ago :-/
