Yep, the console had languished at salvage for more than a decade, in
a back corner. Much of the electronics has been stripped, but the structure
is pretty complete and the CRTs and much of the HV is still there.

The 205 carcass is still there, being stripped for gold, no cards left,
just backplane blocks and coaxial interconnect.

I don't know what happened to the ETA-10, but I'm guessing it was sold.
