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. An exceptional entry point into the model train hobby is a starter kit. Starter kits are offered from all the leading brand names and can save a sizable piece of money at the cost of some flexibility. When choosing a starter kit, based on the locomotive which is the most crucial piece. Typically, the power products included with starter kits are low quality. Buy a kit that plays down the power supply or does not have one at all, and instead, buy a different unit. If the selected starter kit does have a power supply, save it in case the kit is ever resold.
