I suppose, though writing a little HDL to provide the function of a TTL
gate isn't very hard.  As it turns out, the design I replicated from my
college days was actually DTL, rather than TTL.  The lab consisted of 4
19" racks with interconnecting, differentially driven cables.  Each rack
had a card cage, and interconnections were done using re-purposed IBM
unit-record plugboards.  The current project, the IBM 1410, was
originally designed using IBM SMS - discrete transistors.
