For those on the right ( i.e. not left...) side of the Atlantic :
a chap in Austria is desparate in getting rid of a nice looking IBM1130.

The system is currently on Ebay Austria, no bids with a day to go.
Sadly it is CPU only, i.e. no printer and cardreader, but does have a 
nice collection of disk packs.

For those who know : is the software adaptable enough to reroute IO to 
the console

I would still be tempted if it was  not a 6 hour drive one way across 
the Alps.
