Ken Rodig served as IBLS Midwest Secretary from 1996 until the IBLS was dissolved in 2003.

Early Interests

Model trains have always held Ken’s interest, starting with his father’s Lionel® set around the family’s Christmas tree. While he also models in other scales (he had an HO scale home layout and is in the process of building a G scale) Ken was hooked on live steam trains after running a friend’s live steam locomotive. Ken has been a member of MLES since 1984, and the Club’s secretary since 1987.

Ken Rodig - This is a new prototype of the famous SW1 switcher locomotive. Four gear case axle drives provide plenty of tractive motive power on this compact 1.5" scale electric powered locomotive. The 110 watt sound system provides the most realistic effects of an actual SW1 diesel locomotive. Road colors represent the "Ironwood System" which was noted for their longtime rail service to the paper industry.
