  • Dec 20

    10:00 AM - Brooks Room

    Michael “The Train Man” Lavrich returns to the Downtown Bend Library to share his extensive collection of model trains.

    This marks Lavrich’s nineteenth year displaying his trains at the library, meaning children who first watched the trains run almost 20 years ago may now have children of their own with whom they share this family tradition. Lavrich began collecting trains more than 20 years ago. While the public only sees the display once it’s all up and running, the set-up involves a lot of background work. “I pretty well dedicate December to this,” Lavrich says. “It’s a four day set-up and a four day take-down, and there are a few weeks on each end at home.”

    All ages are invited to watch and listen as the trains run. Lavrich’s collection represents trains of the 1920s and ‘30s made by Lionel, Dorfan, Ives and American Flyer.

    10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. & 3:00-6:00 p.m.
    (trains will not be running 1:00pm - 3:00pm)
