Looks like you're right, Mark - checking all TMDR items on eBay UK at the moment shows a lot of good stuff that nobody's bidding for! I guess everyone already has what they want or they're saving their pennies (or cents) for the re-releases and the new album. Ah well, it's got a few more days to run yet, maybe somebody will want it.
If it doesn't sell this time I might take your tip and wait for the re-releases - at first I thought that would be foolish, as nobody would want it once you could get the rare tracks on a proper CD, but on reflection I guess you mean the increased profile for Thomas might boost second hand sales too. Hope so.
Mind you, an apparently rare children's book that I coloured in myself as a nipper back inthe 70's has just been bid up to a tenner, so I can't complain. At least it's something towards the GAOW re-release!
