phase atsf limited edition

Check out our a large variety of phase atsf limited edition trains and accessories for the more fully grown train collectors as well for very first time buyers.

Original parts and product packaging are a huge consider value, and it is necessary for the collector to know that for buying and in preparation of ultimately trading and offering model trains. Locomotives and railroad cars without their initial box and printed materials can lose as much as 50 percent of their mint value. One of the most common errors that new enthusiasts make is that they dispose of boxes, guideline sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and relatively inconsequential accessories, however all these items have value. Collecting, keeping, and saving the packaging and relevant products is nearly as important as doing so for the actual trains. Before the very first purchase, the new enthusiast has to choose a scale. Every purchase made will be influenced by that choice due to the fact that locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories have to be at the exact same scale; otherwise, the train will not work or look right. Some railroad model enthusiasts do gather multiple scales, however taking on an added scale is essentially like taking on an additional hobby. The traditional and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which operates at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular options include O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1).
