    No even older - see post #10
    Supermicro Mounting Rack Rails Kit For SC748 4U Chassis MCP-290-00001-00 | eBay

    The chassis model is based on the chassis first (CSE-846, then on the backplane (TQ), then on the original PSU (900), then on HA version or not (B which is HA = different fans + 2 extra drives in the back) - as far as I know.
    But - each chassis that is available today is the n-th revision of that chassis, again, see post #10 for the revision that switched to new rails which means all revisions before use the old style (wide =60mm) rails and not the new (40mm) ones.

    The short depth rails (MCP-290-00058-0N) support all chassis while the regular rails are split into 2u/3u (MCP-290-00053-0N) and 4u/5u (MCP-290-00057-0N) with only different outer rails (probably providing more load baring capabilities) - but that tells you that all inner rails are the same so all are inter-exchangeable from a physical mounting point of view.
    O/c for rails there is also old and new revisions, current is B and its not quite clear what was changed from A.
