Once scale is determined, the next step is to select a quality, intermediate level locomotive. Purchasing the locomotive is a big choice that will certainly have a ripple effect. Do not cut corners, and if splurging is an option, this is the time to do it. Low-cost locomotives are more trouble than they're worth and will considerably extend the learning curve. When it comes to complexity, a lot of newbies will quickly grow out of a newbie level locomotive and remorse not having actually purchased the advanced intermediate model. Original parts and packaging are a big consider value, and it is necessary for the collector to know that for purchasing and in preparation of ultimately trading and offering model trains. Locomotives and railroad vehicles without their original box and printed products can lose as much as 50 percent of their mint value. One of the most typical errors that new hobbyists make is that they dispose of boxes, instruction sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and relatively irrelevant accessories, but all of these products have value. Gathering, keeping, and saving the product packaging and associated products is nearly as important as doing so for the actual trains. Before the first purchase, the brand-new enthusiast should choose a scale. Every purchase made will be impacted by that decision due to the fact that locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories should be at the same scale; otherwise, the train will not work or look right. Some railroad model enthusiasts do gather several scales, however handling an extra scale is basically like handling an added hobby. The conventional and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which operates at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular alternatives include O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1).
