OK, I am curious. No, I am not interested in the machines (unless it
was a VAX 9000).

How much could one reasonable expect to pay for getting a big VAX,
lets say a 350 kg in the typical DEC cabinet, from mainland Europe to
Britain? Or from Britain to mainland Europe? Or even to and from

Sure, one could hire movers and riggers - pay them enough and they
will deliver a locomotive - but what about typical on-the-cheap
hobbyist methods?
