Yes, it is a shame that few machines are even assembled, no 
less running, but STILL VERY much worth the trip.
They do have a 1401 that runs, but it is only fired up on 
certain days.  It was a TOTAL gas to see all this stuff, 
including most of the machines I ever worked with, even if 
just static displays.  I saw a LINC, Bendix G15 and PDP-12, 
as well as the first machine Seymour Cray built in his 
garage, etching the boards with his own hands!
And that was at the Moffett Field site, it must be a LOT 
better now!
