And don't forget the original 555 transport, and the LINCtape.

I've never seen this referred to officially as DECtape. It was called
DECcassette. Since this was not a block-addressable random access device,
it is substantially less like DECtape than the TU58, and couldn't be used
as a "system device" for OS/8 or RT11.

DECtape II.

My arm could be twisted to make a tape available, but it sounds like you want
a transport, and they are hard to come by.

I've partially completed a caching SCSI controller for the TU56 drive.
