Big Bend Railroad Club

Ken Rimmel

Ken’s first real involvement into trains was when he received a Lionel O27 trainset for Christmas in 1954.   In 1960, he began a more permanent layout in the more popular HO scale and things expanded after that.   Ken is currently a member in about a dozen clubs, museums and historical societies.   His more notable accomplishments includes helping to rebuild the Frisco 1522, working on the Wabash, Frisco & Pacific miniature steam railway in Glencoe, and of course being a key figure with the Big Bend Railroad Club.

Ken has served faithfully as Secretary of the Big Bend Railroad Club for many years.   Besides being the Editor/Publisher of the Club’s newsletter, he has documented much of the history of the club and the depot.   He also helped to get us featured on KETC’s “Living St. Louis” program.

Recently taking early retirement from Avaya after 44 years (the remaining company that was once the equipment side of the former Bell System), Ken expects to spend more time with his hobbies, after spending more time with his family, of course.
