Initial parts and product packaging are a huge factor in value, and it is essential for the collector to understand that for buying and in preparation of ultimately trading and offering model trains. Locomotives and railroad cars without their original box and printed products can lose as much as HALF of their mint value. One of the most common mistakes that new hobbyists make is that they dispose of boxes, instruction sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and seemingly insignificant accessories, but all these items have value. Collecting, keeping, and storing the product packaging and relevant materials is almost as vital as doing so for the real trains. When scale is determined, the next step is to choose a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Buying the locomotive is a big choice that will have a ripple effect. Do not cut corners, and if splurging is an alternative, this is the time to do it. Low-cost locomotives are more problem than they deserve and will significantly extend the knowing curve. When it comes to intricacy, a lot of newbies will rapidly outgrow a newbie level locomotive and remorse not having actually bought the more advanced intermediate model.
