You know what?  I am lame.  I didn't realize SIMH could do the VAX 11/780.  
After searching around a bit I read a message from Bob Supnik circa 2004 
saying that making an 11/780 simulator would require practically a whole 
new simulator and then assumed that no one went forward to make one.  Duh.

Anyway, thanks for the tip.  Now, does anyone know where I can get VMS 
3.2? ;)
