Original parts and packaging are a huge consider value, and it's important for the collector to understand that for purchasing and in prep work of eventually trading and selling model trains. Locomotives and railroad cars without their original box and printed materials can lose as much as HALF of their mint value. Among the most common mistakes that new enthusiasts make is that they dispose of boxes, direction sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and seemingly irrelevant accessories, however all of these products have value. Collecting, maintaining, and saving the product packaging and relevant materials is almost as vital as doing so for the real trains. Prior to the very first purchase, the new enthusiast must choose a scale. Every purchase made will be affected by that decision because locomotives, wagons, tracks, and accessories must be at the exact same scale; otherwise, the train won't work or look right. Some railroad model enthusiasts do gather multiple scales, but handling an additional scale is basically like taking on an extra hobby. The conventional and most popular model train scale is HO scale, which operates at an 87.1:1 ratio. Other popular choices consist of O-scale (48:1) and G-scale (22.5:1).
