Craig Martyn Craig Martyn

Craig Martyn is the President of BLMA Models, a company he founded in 2000, at age 15. Craig graduated from Cal State University Fullerton, with a major in Advertising and a Minor in Business Administration. Currently, he is the Founder and President of a second company and a member of the Entrepreneurs Organization.

Craig's love of model trains started at an early age as he quickly took to N Scale. More often than not, he was unable to locate the kinds of accurate accessories he wanted in order to make his locomotives and layouts as realistic as possible. This lack of numerous products created a niche that Craig worked hard to fill.

After learning the aspects of the model railroad industry by working for several different companies, he established BLMA Models. By having all products designed and tested in house, the company is able to manufacture products that make ultimate realism in model railroading possible.

Craig keeps a constant influence over all aspects of BLMA Models. From research to CAD design; from advertising to public relations; he also continues to participate in the hobby he loves. Craig is an honorary member of the Orange County N-Gineers, a modular N-Track club located in Orange County, California. In his spare time, you can find Craig playing the drums, enjoying the outdoors, and relaxing with friends and family.
