Michael “The Train Man” Lavrich returns to the Downtown Bend Library on December 20 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.

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. Trains will run December 20th to the 28th, but running times vary by day:


  • December 20 & 21: 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.; 3:00 p.m. ­– 6:00 p.m.
  • December 22 & 23: noon – 5:00 p.m.
  • December 27 & 28: 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.; 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
