I also have an ATOnce 286 board in another machine, but like you say, little more than a curiosity these days.

Cool, this is in the UK now:

Hopefully be here this week, then I can give my dodgy Megas a more through check over. Can't believe I ordered it way back in October for my birthday and it's only just here!!

Should be the final piece of my ST tools puzzle.
