This was the machine I learned to program on.  (What was then Humble
Oil & Refining donated it to my high school.  I was the only student
curious enough to work on it.)

I still have one of each of the vaccum tube plugin cards.

Oh, and a copy of the technical manual with the FE's notes :-)

The last time I tried to gather together information about it (see
URL below), there were four still known.  Even as late at 20 years
ago there had been others, at McGill University in Canada, and one
in Australia:

I'm not either.  I have never seen that before.

I hope so too.  I'm not at the stage of my life where I could take on
this task.  But I would be glad to assist anyone actually working on one.
