I've seen a lot of discussions over the years about toy trains as an investment. The New York Times has an interesting article today (click on the title link) focusing on the financial aspects of collecting rarities. The bottom line is that you shouldn't view your collecting as an investment for several reasons, including the difficulty of buying at the right price. The bottom line: “People who collect with their hearts are best at it.” This is because at least they truly enjoy what they acquire even if they don't make an eventual profit on their treasures.
