I sent my replies both to the list and to what appeared to be the 
sender's address (I suspect he's not on the list) and to date have heard 
nothing more...

I believe the manuals are available from http://www.hpmuseum.net/ . As I 
mentuioned, I would quite like a set of original manuals simply because I 
am still doing things with these machines and it's a right pain (read : 
next to impossible) for me to download and print anything that large.

They are interesting machines....

Alsa we don't know the specification yet (even if they're -A (monochrome) 
or -C (colour) machines. 

I really can't accomodate any more of these machines, but would be 
interested in unusual add-ons that I've not seen so as to produce 
unofficial repair information for them (which I'll then share of course). 

And I would be very happy to help in getting all the machines running
