Cab-1 and command base TMCC sets do show up for less than $300 - I found a new set at a local meet a couple of months ago for about $175, and I've seen them on Trainz for well under $300.  The auction sites are crazy, though.

Major caveat: If you see one for a bargain price, make sure that it includes the power supply.  The power supply might look like an ordinary wall wart, but it isn't - it possesses magical powers.  If it's missing, there are options - search for threads regarding TMCC power supply for further details - it's been done to death here on the forum.

Naming conventions for electronics change as time progresses.  I believe the original TMCC combo was referred to as Cab-1 and Command Base, the first Legacy was Cab-2 and Command Base (or Base-2??), and the most recent Legacy iteration is Base-1L/Cab-1L.  With this last iteration, I believe the most common vernacular is now Cab1/Base1 for TMCC, Cab2/Base2 for Legacy, and Cab1L/Base1L for the last version.  The newest version, as yet undelivered, is only a Cab3 because no hand-held remote seems to be planned.
