I have been collecting equipment for learning purposes for years. I am now moving and must find homes for equipment, source operating systems (some even on 3 1/4 disks), documentation, books etc. If you pay the packaging and shipping costs, they are yours. I live between Denver and Colorado Springs.  Equipment includes: Delni-AA LAT Terminal Server, Celebris XL590, VT 420 terminal, DEC Server 9090L, 3 VRC 16 terminals, DEC 2000 AXP, Celebris GL 5120, Storage Expansion Alpha ST 400, 2 VT 320s, DEC 3000 400, VAX Station 3100 and more.
