I'm in the same boat though my interest is in the M1600 implementation of
Reality.  At one point I started a SIMH implementation of the 1600 CPU but
didn't get very far before the idea of trying a FPGA/Verilog solution took
over.  That has gotten a bit further but is not progressing very fast.

If you want to swap notes and ideas or even collaborate on an emulation
then I'd be happy to help (& be helped :)
