Deschutes Library ‘Train Main’ returns to Downtown Bend library

Train Man

The Train Man is back at the Deschutes Library in Downtown Bend starting Saturday.

Michael Lavrich started displaying his model trains at the library nearly 25 years ago. He is back this year with a beautiful display that will get everyone excited and in the holiday spirit.

It’s the community and their love for the trains that keep the Train Man and his son coming back.

“You can see it in their faces. They’re just so you know, when everything is moving and lit up by that shiny, it’s very engaging and the kids will literally just pull their chairs right up and their eyes glaze over. And even the adults to sometimes get that level of excitement. So the reaction from the community is really, really amazing and it keeps us going,” said Kieran Lavrich, Michael’s son.
