Re: Need Info: Märklin set #8101
- Chester, thanks for the information, I was trying to figure out what
prototype it was. What about scarcity? Is 5 years a long production
run for an item? Also, being so old is it rare or is it a fairly
common item for its age? I managed to get it for 100 bucks off of
ebay and was wondering if I got a good deal on it?
