IBM 1401 system

IBM 1401 CPU and TAU IBM 1401 CPU and TAU IBM 729 Tape Drive

This 1401 tape system is complete with CPU including tape adapter unit, 1402 card reader/punch, 1403 line printer and six 729 tape drives. The system came from Phoenix where it was used in a military installation with a 7080. The tape drives are all dual-channel so that they can connect to two different computers and switch between them. I last ran this system in the early 1980's.
