Durango used Beehive VT100/VT220 (I'm not sure which)) on their Poppy
systems (which are probably even rarer than the terminals).  The
terminals were re-badged as Durango.

I was a bit surprised to find that the Super Bee (of which I was very
fond in the day) was re-badged as an HP 2616A.

8008 CPU, with shift-register memory, IIRC.  A heavy, slab-sided
terminal with a welded (?) aluminum case.  Several illuminated keys.
