Hi Patrick

Get in the queue ;-)

Seriously the VME cards come up from time to time on eBay but they are super
expensive. Often in the industrial sections. Parsytec TPM boxes can be a bit
of fun T8xx/PPC Combination.
The SBus cards almost never come up and are tightly held.

If you are into building your own I have some KiCAD that I have put together
for a Size-4 TRAM Carrier. I am also part way through testing a Size-2 TRAM. 4
layer board and through hole components.  Was going to work on a larger size 8
or 16 TRAM Carrier at some point. I am part way through building a Transputer
cluster with more than 64 Transputers.

Also if you are looking for a host adapter then the ISA such as the AVM B1 is
a good starting point -

a spectacular resource for Transputers)

Hope that helps.
