OK I see a 50 pictures of consoles. How about an overview of how they're arranged and set-up?

Good point, it's (relatively simple).  In terms of how the consoles are arranged there's a couple of overarching rules, but there's no ordering based on manufacturer, age, era or anything like that.  

 

A slightly old picture of the shelving units

 

Any systems that work best on old fashioned CRT screens (including the Atari 2600) are on the left hand side, any machines that need some weird screen modes or refresh frequencies are on the right, with my OSSC unit.

 

Other than that, There are 9 units, each with 3 shelves.  The units are named A to I and the the shelves 1, 2 and 3.  Obviously, I only have a couple of screens (ignoring the CRT).  So each unit is connected via a video switcher, and then three of those switchers are connected together.
