Anyone got a working DEC10 (or a running emulator?)

A friend at Edinburgh recovered some binaries, a bit of source code,
and a fair bit
of documentation for the Imp language running on the Dec 10.
We're holding a reunion and historical conference in Edinburgh in a couple
of weeks - it occurred to me it might be fun if I could show the folks back
home that the old code was running again...
Does anyone have a working Dec10, whether a physical or a virtual one?
Our recovered code is here: http://history.dcs.ed.ac.uk/archive/dec10/imp/
(also if you pop up a directory there's some more stuff, but not of as
immediate interest as getting the compiler to run again!)
If you could download any of these binaries and give them a try I'ld
be very interested to see the results. I think this ran under tops10/tops20
and the precise version of CPU shouldn't be critical I don't think.
A trivial "hello world" imp program might be:
print string("Hello world!")
%end %of %program
If anyone can get it running, I'll announce it and credit you at the
