Original parts and product packaging are a big factor in value, and it's important for the collector to understand that for purchasing and in prep work of eventually trading and selling model trains. Locomotives and railroad cars without their original box and printed products can lose as much as 50 percent of their mint value. One of the most common mistakes that new enthusiasts make is that they dispose of boxes, instruction sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and relatively inconsequential accessories, but all these products have value. Gathering, preserving, and storing the packaging and associated products is nearly as important as doing so for the actual trains. Prior to the very first purchase, the brand-new lover must choose a scale. Every purchase made will certainly be affected by that choice due to the fact that locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories have to be at the same scale; otherwise, the train will not work or look right. Some railroad model lovers do gather numerous scales, however taking on an added scale is essentially like handling an additional pastime. The conventional and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which operates at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular alternatives include O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1).
