Initial parts and product packaging are a big factor in value, and it is essential for the collector to understand that for purchasing and in preparation of ultimately trading and offering model trains. Locomotives and railroad cars without their original box and printed materials can lose as much as HALF of their mint value. Among the most common errors that brand-new hobbyists make is that they discard boxes, instruction sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and relatively inconsequential accessories, however all of these products have value. Gathering, keeping, and storing the product packaging and relevant products is almost as essential as doing this for the actual trains. Gathering model trains is a natural experience, and hobbyists need to embrace that. Even the enthusiast who likes structure will discover that their order often takes a backseat to the natural advancement of a certain train, track, or landscape. Commonly, the impulse for the brand-new collector is to be ambitious and plan a vast landscape and numerous railroad lines. Typically, however, this is a mistake because the model train collector's interests and vision will develop too. The better technique is to prepare in small increments, and after that have each brand-new stage creatively include the layers that came prior to it.
