Facts:In it's final years of operation the Comet's trains were shortened to 4 cars and the extra car was used for spare parts.

Little Amerricka in Marshall, WI purchased the Comet's trains and intends to one day build a copy of the Comet using the original trains after refurbishing them.  The Comet's structure itself is too far deteriorated to be salvaged.  This will be a very large project for Little Amerricka and there is no timetable for this project at this time.
