We've just been offered a Norsk Data ND100 (running Sintran), which
according to the 'offeree' is somewhat unusual in being a rack-mount
version rather than the more typical cabinet variety.

I doubt the museum can take it though as we're somewhat swamped in mini-
class machines at present, but it's destined for landfill otherwise.

Comes with full documentation and (likely) the controlling dumb terminal
and a Genicom dot-matrix printer. Was working when put into storage
apparently. The hard disk and floppy are also mounted in the rack (so no
seperate enormous cabinets! :-)

It sounds like the company may be hanging onto the rack it was put in
(which probably makes it a little easier to manage, at least for most UK
folks!) but that they may be disposing of the rack too.

The machine's currently in Reading, Berkshire.

There doesn't seem to be much info about these on the 'net - from what I
gather they're 16 bit minis with a bit-slice ALU, and microprogrammed

Anyone able to save it? I can put you in touch if so.
