What I'm wondering is how APDL came to have a load of brand new Risc PCs which were stored since new? Who would store such things, and why?

You'll probably find that they were in the back of a warehouse somewhere, and forgotten about. Either that, or they were saved for someone who now doesn't want them.

Just a note to say that RONWUG welcomes visitors and doesn't charge an entrance fee so it's a great chance to see the A9home if you can get to south Manchester (Sale) - and there is plenty of on-site parking space.
