Slightly off topic but collectable if they stop working, then stuff 'em in a glass display case.

I have a friend who purchased for an investment one of the Bachmann limited editions with coaches in a nice wooden box. Looked nice then he went & took all of them out with grubby hands & ran them around for a while & when he put them bck in the box, managed to bend a coupling. When I mentioned that the investment has been degraded as it is now no longer new & slightly damaged, he spat the dummy especially when I offered to but them from him for normal price, not the Special Edition price. He & his wife, were under the impression that the value would stay even if it had been used & slightly damaged.
