TRAIN DISPLAY & GATEWAY CLASSIC CARS

March 12, 2016

It was like Christmas in March when more than 40 members of the Mercedes Benz Saint Louis Gateway Section met at Tom Germann’s house in Illinois for a spectacular train display.  Tom is a member of the National Train Collectors Association and has received their highest honor of winning first place for his display.  Tom had over 12 separate trains running at the same time to show how his computer controlled display can perform.

 

Photographs cannot do justice to this wonderful display and collection of trains.  A big thank you goes out to Tom for allowing the Mercedes Club this private viewing of his train collection.

 

Following this, members travelled to Gateway Classic Cars in O’Fallon, Illinois.  They were treated to an awesome collection of vehicles, all of which were for sale.  There were over 210 cars on display which included a 129 Ford Model A, Central fire truck, 1966 Jaguar XKE, 1997 Lotus Esprit, and a 2014 Viper.

 

After meandering around all the cars housed in this showroom, members sat down to a luncheon buffet of delicious BBQ, salads and dessert.

 

A big thank you goes out to Carol and Sonny Sterthman for putting together this fabulous day event of “cars and trains”.
