We won't be taking a CD32 as we are only taking UK machines. Space is limited but if we can we will try and fit the CD32 PSU in for you to try.

Picked up somthing rather special last week - a  BBC Micro Model A - unexpanded with its original 16k RAM. No tube, disk drive, RGB, Econet, user or analog ports either! Case needs a major clean and a attempt to remove the school markings.

Also got a Spectrum Interface 2 and a RS232 adapter for the Amstrad CPC.

Picked up a 100% working Commodore Plus 4 at the VCF, just bought a atari 7800, with box and games of ebay, and found a playstation 1 in the charity shop at work today!

Cool as!

carnt get it to work looking a bit closer at this the power supply is not the one for the comp and the joyport one looks like theres 2 pins missing but the green light comes on so i may pop this to the unit and try the rcm's bit to see if i can get it working
