    Man oh man! Now I have to have me a CV too! That is a beautiful train there and stellar photography. I see these nice engines can be had cheap on eBay. I bid on one in a set including the cars, track and transformer with a maximum bid of 43 dollars and just got outbid by a dollar! That auction closed a 44 dollars! That seems really cheap for a complete Marx train set.

    Is there anything to look for when bidding on a Commodore Vanderbilt? Thanks, Chris.

    They made both electric and wind-up versions so make sure what you're bidding on is what you want. $44 does seem low but if one went for that, then others will too. A boxed set will sell for more than a loose set will. If you just want a train to run, those are the auctions to pay more attention to, since they'll draw less attention from set collectors.
