If I wasn't in the UK and shipping so expensive I would probably have all
the RD5x drives and some of the catalogues too. I really hope someone
rescues the MicroVAX enclosures and shells!

Have you posted this to cctalk? Also, is there any software on the TK50
tapes that is not available online? If so that should get rescued, if there
are no takers and there is valuable software then I might pay the shipping
to try to recover them.
