Trains Names Keefe Interim Editor

Trains magazine has appointed Kevin P. Keefe as its interim editor.

Keefe, a Michigan native, served as editor-in-chief of the magazine between 1992 and 2000 and for a short time in 2004 before the appointment of the late Jim Wrinn as editor.

After leaving the editor’s chair, Keefe worked as an executive at Kalmbach Media until retiring as vice president-editorial in 2016, one of many positions he held with the company.

Wrinn, who was the second longest serving editor of Trains, died of pancreatic cancer on March 30.

In making the announcement, Kalmbach said Keefe will serve as interim editor until a permanent editor is appointed.

Keefe grew up in Niles, Michigan, and now lives in Milwaukee. Before coming to Trains, he worked as a newspaper reporter including at the Milwaukee Sentinel between 1980 and 1987.
