There was a Burroughs mainframe available free for the taking last
November or December. Unfortunately it was in Australia. I corresponded
with the fellow on behalf of a new cold-war era museum that is under
development near Ottawa Ontario.
You might contact the folks at http://www.diefenbunker.ca/indexe.htm
see if they had any luck with the Burroughs machine after I put them in
touch with the fellow in Australia.
They are looking for a 50-60s vintage Burroughs mainframe to install in
the machine room of the bunker. I offered to coordinate shipping but did
not hear back from either party afterwards.
Perhaps the Australian machine was the incorrect model for them - they
might be able to connect you with him to see if what he has meets your
desperately seeking a Burroughs 205 computer controller console,
circa 1957. Does
anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
