In early 2020, the Dansk Datahistorisk Forening decided that they needed more space in their storage and that the two machines Batman and Robin together with the filestore needed a new home. Together with the machines were a lot of spare part. I let them know that I was interested in some of the spare parts for my machines and it looked like the two ND-5800 machines would end up in an exhibition in Norway.
This was just before the COVID-19 epidemic broke out and the plans of the move got postponed. In late summer the discussions were taken up again, but now I was the only one expressing any interest in the machines. To avoid the two machines would be scrapped I agreed to take care of the whole lot.

5 pallets from Denmark, the cards from one already loaded in my car.

It took five pallets to transport the lot to Umeå and in late October it arrived here in perfect condition. To help me with the economical part, a collection drive was done on the facebook group and on the mailing list datahistorie@mailman.efn.no. I'm extremely grateful to the support I've been given by both known people and unknown.

Nisse is contemplating why he agreed to help me.

All cabinets have been transported to my house with the help of my good friend Nisse. He is starting to get used to move machines like this. It took three trips with a cargo wan and two trips with my car to get all the equipment moved.

It is finally done so now starts the job of documenting, scanning, making images of media and restoring the machines. I got 14 SCSI disks and many floppies to copy.
