It's not possible to blend and match model train scales, however collectors need to do not hesitate to mix and match brands, cars, and tracks; in fact, many lovers do, in part, to achieve the purchased chaos found in real rail backyards. After purchasing the starter kit and power supply, mixed lots can be an economical method of expanding the options for a new operator. This suggestions does contradict the tour guide's recommendations concerning brands and retail packaging. Eventually, she or he can change the mixed lots with more valuable pieces and possibly even resell them to another new lover. 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.
