What matters most when it pertains to gathering model trains is the condition of the products. Model trains need to run, which is an element that sets model railroading apart from many other gathering ventures. Even a model train collector who doesn't actually run the trains wants pieces that work because that capability is intrinsic to their value. Broken model trains do sell but generally at a significant price cut with the intent of restoring them. New hobbyists should stay with the existing trains until they gain experience. An important element of getting that experience is studying rate guides, keeping an eye on trends, and discovering how condition affects value. When scale is identified, the next step is to pick a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Purchasing the locomotive is a huge choice that will have a causal sequence. Do not cut corners, and if splurging is an alternative, this is the time to do it. Inexpensive locomotives are more trouble than they deserve and will substantially extend the learning curve. When it comes to intricacy, the majority of newbies will quickly outgrow a novice level locomotive and regret not having bought the more advanced intermediate model.
