2020 Holiday Steam Up has been Cancelled.

Hello friends and fellow steamers,

Sadly we are unable to host our Holiday Steam Up due to Covid-19. We will greatly miss seeing your faces and playing trains with you. This annual event doubles as a fundraiser for Friendly House, a social service agency in our Northwest Portland neighborhood. Amy and Larry have been involved with this charity for many years. Friendly House provides essential care and support services to low income families and elders in our community. Like every non-profit, they have experienced an immense uptick in need during the pandemic. At the Holiday Steam Up, we ask guests to donate at the door. This generosity helps to support the holiday giving program at Friendly House. Amy has been busy making holiday cards for local seniors served by Friendly House and ordering toys from their Amazon wish list for families in need. We can’t greet you at the door this year, but we are asking that you please consider making a donation to Friendly House this season in the spirit of our event, supporting those living on the margins in our community during this impossibly difficult time.

If you’d like to learn more about Friendly House’s programming and make a donation, please go to www.friendlyhouseinc.org.

We miss you all and can’t wait to get back to running trains together. Stay safe, warm and healthy this holiday season.

Amy and Larry

Staver’s is also home to a machine shop with a collection of 3D printers, CNC machines, lathes, and all the other equipment we use to cut, carve, machine, and mill our growing community of models.
