Did I miss a meeting or something? There are four Blue Comet sets out on eBay. 3 of them are "original" and 1 is MTH. Did everyone decide to sell their Comet sets last week? I know people decide to buy and sell trains daily if not hourly. There is also an O gauge Comet set (prewar) out there as well.
What kind of concerns me is that I have seen the Comet on eBay at least 10 times in the last year. It seldom comes from someone that knows trains; always a person that bought it from the owner at a rare estate sale. Funny as that may seem, I have heard similar tales at train shows as well from train dealers that also happen to belong to quite a few clubs.
