    Our space

    Staver Locomotive, located in a restored historic building in the heart of Portland’s NW industrial area, is home to a growing ecosystem of 1:32 scale model trains, buildings, and environments. 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.
