Muddy Creek is the alias that yours truly is known by on several model railroad forums, including NScale.net where I spend far too much time. Time that would be better spent developing more kits to provide to fellow modelers.
Muddy Creek is the fictional name of the latest in a series of scale model railroads. Hopefully, this one will be seen through to completion (as much as any model railroad is ever completed.)
Muddy Creek was the long-ago, original, unassuming and aptly descriptive name of the town I grew up in, having in the 1870's been changed to more pretentious name.
Muddy Creek also was also the name of the bar where I used to hang out in my younger years, but that's another story.
In addition to offering a series of laser-cut wood kits, I am a free-lance designer/CAD drafter living in Western Maine, where I was an engineering supervisor for a modular building manufacturer.
Before leaving the Adirondacks for the hills of Western Maine, I was a freelance consultant/designer for builders and manufacturers of modular homes. Over 25 years of specializing in home design and CAD production drawing has provided the perfect jumping-off point into scale model architecture. Who would a thunk it?
Most enduring of the interests has been railroading, started at a very early age with my father's Lionel layout. Why it's taken so long to try to combine that interest with a career escapes me, but I suspect cars, girls, education and then a family all had a part in it. Finally, the planets have aligned and the Muddy Creek RR was born.
When not working, I can be found paddling the waters or cycling the roads and trails of Western Maine, gardening or visiting family back in my old home state of New York.
