Two more options.

Get PUTR from and use it to move the files onto an image
you can then mount  under SIMH.


Thanks... unfortunately I'm running 64-bit Windows and just discovered PUTR 
will only run on a 32-bit (or even older) machine.
There was some interest in 2016 about an updated version but I can't find 
I've got an ancient XP box upstairs that I use as a smart terminal for the 
PDP-8 (and PDP-11).
So now I get to have fun getting an XP machine to network with a Win7. Sigh.
