Is Collecting a Bad Thing?


When I first started in Z scale back in the 1980s, collecting this tiny gauge was all the rage. More then operating trains, Z scalers were collecting Märklin beer cars or one of every Kadee (soon to be Micro-Trains) release. The hunt for those missing pieces kept us active as we hunted down the rare and hard to find Z scale items. In the 1990s, Kohl’s even released collector guides for Märklin Z.

But this slowly changed and Z moved from collecting to operating. This was a welcome move, with manufacturers having more emphasis on prototypical details and accuracy. This continued to build and today, it seems collectors are few.....
