I have several of these that I would offer to rescuers for
shipping plus a couple of bucks for my trouble.  They are
~3U in height, and have two bus connections and two PSUs
in them.  They came out of the server room at $JOB-1 and
used to have 1/2 height Barracudas in them plus CD-ROM and
tape drive.  These trays were made by Parity Systems.

I toyed with swapping the internal cables from 50-pin to
68-pin, but didn't get that far (the story of my computing
project life :-/).
