There were never many models made.  Look for a DEC GIGAswitch.  It's
large.  At least a dozen rack U.  Maybe even 20U.  Look on ebay.

Most people don't need it though.  I think you're probably actually
looking for a FDDI concentrator.  It's actually more similar in spirit to
an ethernet hub, although the technology is a bit different.  Look for a
Cisco WS-C1400.  Also on ebay.  Empty, maybe $10.  With two sixteen-port
cards, a bit more.
