But you can probably make them all work together! OK so I can
use the three TRAMs on the Transtech (five if I could find
another two size one TRAMs) but I have dreams of hypercubes. Sad
but true ;-)

I was wrong, it has 8+6 dip switches and no jumpers

I've a 1991 Data Book (see below) but its a bit modern for my
boards (I've nothing with crossbar switching), none of which match
the number of jumpers and dip switches but perhaps a more careful
reading by me will give me a few more hints etc.
