Original parts and product packaging are a huge factor in value, and it's important for the collector to know that for buying and in preparation of eventually trading and selling model trains. Locomotives and railroad cars without their initial box and printed materials can lose as much as 50 percent of their mint value. Among the most typical errors that new hobbyists make is that they dispose of boxes, guideline sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and seemingly irrelevant accessories, but all of these items have value. Gathering, preserving, and storing the packaging and relevant materials is almost as essential as doing so for the actual trains. What matters most when it pertains to collecting model trains is the condition of the items. Model trains need to run, which is an aspect that sets model railroading apart from numerous other collecting undertakings. Even a model train collector who does not really run the trains desires pieces that work because that capability is intrinsic to their value.
