For example, I don't know that anyone emulates the PDP-11/60 WCS.  The absence of that emulation isn't a big deal, unless you want to run the Richy Lary PDP-8 emulator on that emulated 11/60.  (Has it been preserved?)

I have long heard of the PDP-8 emulator that depends on the 11/60 WCS
but every time it comes up, it's always been said to be lost.

Feel free to prove me wrong, anyone.  I'd love to stare at it.
