Marsh Creek's design, mastering, and production methods have improved to the point that the original models are no longer to the standard of quality that I have placed on them. I will not sell an inferior product, and after test casting the latest designs in HOn30, the original models fall short. Honestly, craftsman kit manufacturers making kits in On30 seem to be a dime a dozen, and the market is oversold. In that kind of environment, competition is fierce, and a poor product won't cut it, and will hurt the company's future. The Maine Frame in On30 is one kit that stands out among a pack of generic freight kits, and will continue development and production.
The future of Marsh Creek lies in a scale that has the potential to expand, where the market is undersold, and modelers are looking for a standout product. HOn30 (or HOn2 1/2) will be our main focus henceforth. As time and revenues permit, the original On30 kits may get reintroduced on a limited basis.
There are big plans for the company. Plans for multimedia locomotive conversions are already in the works, with photoetch, and white metal parts, all made here in Pennsylvania, more specifically, in my basement! It is with this forward vision that I must continue.
