You may not be aware that you can purchase hobbyist licenses and media for OpenVMS

http://www.montagar.com/hobbyist/mount.html

As well, there is a free emulator available under SIMH

http://simh.trailing-edge.com/vax.html

for the VAX

There is also Charon-VAX. At one time there was a download available, though I can't find it now.

I also just looked at an online auction site. They're practically giving away the Vaxstation 4000 these days.
