Hermann caboose gets sandblasted

Caboose #13538 is undergoing a renovation at the Hermann Train Station. It’s being sandblasted right down to its skivvies, to prepare the surface for a new paint job. The Caboose Committee has been raising funds for the project and this will be completion of Phase One—exterior renovation. TTT Dustless Blasting from O’Fallon is finishing up today and priming and painting will start tomorrow. Spokesperson Gary Leabman says the painting will be done by volunteers.

The Caboose Committee eventually hopes to have a museum quality display explaining railroad history in Hermann.

The committee says additional funding is needed for this beautification and educational project. For more information, contact Gary Leabman 314-280-9944.
