COFF transfer, TUHS Bcc'd to know where this thread went.

Between the two if you're not doing UNIX-specific things but just trying to resurrect/restore these, COFF will probably be the better place for further discussion.  @OP if you're not a member of COFF already, you should be able to reach out to Warren Toomey regarding subscription.

If you're feeling particularly adventurous, NetBSD still supports VAX in some manner:

YMMV, but I've had some success with NetBSD on some pretty oddball stuff.  As the old saying goes, "Of course it runs NetBSD".  You might be able to find some old VMS stuff for them as well, but I wouldn't know where to point you other than bitsavers.  There's some other archival site out there with a bunch of old DEC stuff but I can never seem to find it when I search for it, only by accident.  Best of luck!
