Looking for info on "Comet"
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, August 19, 2001 7:47 PM
I'm looking for information and/or photos of
a 4-4-0 American named "Comet." Comet ran with
the New Haven (or one of its predecessors) in
southern New England, and subsequently was adopted
as symbol for a Hartford-based insurance firm
(Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection & Insurance).

I'd love to model this engine in HO, but don't
have clue one as to its history beyond a short
blurb in the firm's webpage.

Any clues? Thanx!
