As Marco said, read the Cygwin Time Machine archive instructions at that 
page, find the Setup version you require at 
then use that to download the old Setup, find a "circa" mirror near the 
date you downloaded, run the downloaded Setup and add that "circa" mirror, 
then use it to install only the packages you require, as that link is slow, 
and your connection may be dropped if you abuse it.

You may also start Setup manually or using a shortcut with a "circa" 
mirror e.g. 
-O -s ftp://www.fruitbat.org/pub/cygwin/circa/64bit/2016/12/16/151347/

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
