Craig Martyn is a young entrepreneur in a 100-year-old industry, but his business practices are far from archaic. Martyn, a business student at Cal State Fullerton, is a shining example of how someone can transform a hobby into a growing business.

I've been watching Craig's progress and it's a true inspiration.

I've got three sons in school, and every one of them got copied on that link.

He's given us great new stuff and an 'in your face' to everyone that says that you can't make a successful model railroading products business.

Agree.  Craig's advantage is that he doesn't think like the dinosaurs....and that his marketing is better than trainman's. ;)

Clearly it's because he uses hot babes in his ads.  This has worked for Auto Parts for years!
