Collecting model trains is an organic experience, and enthusiasts need to embrace that. Even the hobbyist who chooses structure will certainly find that their order typically takes a backseat to the natural development of a specific train, track, or landscape. Often, the instinct for the brand-new collector is to be enthusiastic and prepare a sprawling landscape and numerous railroad lines. Generally, however, this is a mistake considering that the model train collector's interests and vision will develop too. The better method is to prepare in small increments, then have each brand-new stage artistically include the layers that came prior to it. Original parts and product packaging are a big factor in value, and it is essential for the collector to understand that for buying and in prep work of eventually trading and selling model trains. Locomotives and railroad cars without their original box and printed products can lose as much as HALF of their mint value. Among the most common mistakes that new hobbyists make is that they dispose of boxes, direction sheets, cardboard liners, spacers, and apparently insignificant accessories, however all these products have value. Gathering, keeping, and saving the product packaging and related products is nearly as crucial as doing this for the actual trains.
