Not sure if this is the right place, but I guess most of these are "Mainframes". I took them at the Vintage Computer Fair last year.

Good Pictures.
I went to the Vintage Fair myself (picked up a couple of 5/4" floppy drives cheaply). There was some interesting stuff going on.
Bletchley Park is well worth a visit on a weekend for all of the non computer stuff there as well.

Cheers,
Alan.

I love mainframes! And I realize i have to go to Bletchley park this autumn! If only to see were Alan Turing did is life's work.

Hi Pontus,

If you do go make sure its a weekend as some of the other exhibits are shut during the week (they are opened and run by volunteers who work during the week).
I can definately reccomend the place, there are lots of things to explore. Vintage computers, Radios, costumes, trains (miniature ones!) and a huge Winston Churchill exhibition to name just a few things.
Hope you get there and enjoy it.

Alan.

Ohh, mini trains. I might even convince my wife to join me :)

The old cinema is also good. I was there for a second time last week.

No VCS this year?

I was wondering why no VCS, it was so good last year...
