Join us for an event at Sonny Sterthmann’s friend, Tom Germann’s home, for the most spectacular train display you will ever see. Tom is a member of the national Train Collectors Association and Tom has received their highest honor of winning first place for his display. You will be very surprised at all of the work and detail that Tom has put into this display, which fills a very large room in his house.


Viewing this wonderful train display will begin at 1:00 p.m. Afterwards we will travel to Gateway Classic Cars, which houses a large collection of vehicles, all of which are for sale. A BBQ lunch buffet is planned at this location and will include beef brisket, pulled pork, turkey, potato salad, baked beans and coleslaw.  Cost is $11/person, which includes soft drink and tip.


The address to Tom Germann’s home is 53 Dianne Drive, Belleville, IL 62220. You will want to get on IL Hwy Route 15 East, past the Our Lady of the Snows Shrine, to Centerville Ave, exiting at Route 158. Once you take this exit, make a right onto the roundabout and then exit the first right off of the roundabout. You will travel up a hill and Diane Drive will be the second block on your right. Tom’s house is located on the left hand side of the street. Watch for a sign that will help you find his house. Directions from Tom’s house to Gateway Classic Cars will be provided.


If you will be attending this event, please mail Sonny a check for $11 per person, made out to “MBCA, St. Louis Gateway Section”. Checks are to be received by March 7th so that lunch reservations can be finalized. Address is: Sonny Sterthman, 310 E. Hwy 50, Ste. 1, O’Fallon, IL 62269.
