Spookish? The small portion I am aware of there is nothing spookish. Just a lot of older gear, analog and early digital stuff. Older switches are gone, they had value at one point and where removed. Stuff from the 60’s to the 80’s has been researched and rip’d in quanity.
Remember, AT&T built these for survivability, that was their intent.

can you in any way comment on what the RIP'd equipment being removed
is and from what era ? Switches ? Antique analog mux gear ?, Early
digital cross connect gear ? Old network monitoring gear ?
Stuff from the 70/80s or post 2000 ?
And how much of it is *ahem* obviously spookish (eg Narus DPI boxes)
... versus all the ordinary stuff you'd expect in a network hub...
