Randy, I used plastic drawers for years. My engineering manager pointed out, One day, that more than half the drawers on my lab bench were labeled MISC. I agree with your idea, I was always looking through all the drawers for what I needed. with the clear divided parts bins you can see what you need, and segregate the type of parts in groups.The Train Bench was designed to have a place for the train parts handy. The larger hardware will be kept near my other garage bench in the same type of bins.
Harbor Freight has a cheap organizer for parts bins.
Here is a detail of a place for my train parts. The top drawers were from the Harbor freight organizer.

My wife likes flashlights. we have a ton! I don't want to say that she's afraid of the dark, just the things she can't see in the dark. Now, if you ask me to find a flashlight that works, that's a completely different matter.
mph: It's time to call it a night when the parts you are gluing together stick to the mat, the drafting triangle you are using as a square, the piece of wood you are using for alignment but won't stick to themselves!
