Lurker here, thought I would chime in since I know EXACTLY the half rack 
you are talking about. There one or two of them on eBay a year or so ago.
One had an 11/03 in it and the other I think was a slightly taller 
design (still wood grain surface on top) with two RL/01 (or 02) drives 
in them.
This is the only photo I have been able to find online.
11/03, dual RX floppies, and a VT52 on top just as you described.
