 Acorn RiscPC 2slot backplane

This is a 2 slot backplane for a RiscPC. A RiscPC normally has a 1 case slice, but can be expanded by adding extra case slices to provide space for more storage deivces,. The backplane can be extended into the extra case slices with 4, 6 or 8 slot backplanes. (and maybe even more!). The backplane plugs vertically into the motherboard on the right hand side next the the power supply fan.
