... FYI, here is a picture of my 705 console. It was just recently
completely lit up for the first time in probably 40 years. I found a
supply of replacement neon lamps and got it all working again. It's as
accurate as I could make it, using an original operator training guide
to program microcontrollers to drive the lamps (or course the rest of
the machine disappeared about 40 years ago). Next up I plan to do the
same for my 360 91 console.
