The Harwell WITCH is at Bletchley Park. Not sure if it's fully
functioning, but if so this would be the winner.
Collosus Mark II
did not find any American mainframes from 1950's on youtube, yet. I would
love to see a working IBM 360, from the 60's.
It is possible then, that if we can get the UNIVAC running, assuming the
Mark I is not functional, that we'd have at MARCH the oldest working
computer. If we could just get the main 1219 running, it'd count, yes?
