McBride’s miniature marvel

by GOAT STAFF

All aboard! A neat experience awaits those who visit the McBride Train Station.

McBride’s model train station, which is set up in the baggage room at the train station, was set up by Olaf Shultz, Leondard Dovich, Jim Harte and Glen Frear.

Construction began on the project two years ago, Frear says, and while the model isn’t a representation of a specific place – it’s a representation of the greater world, but small. The railway has significance in the valley, and McBride, as Frear says the Village of McBride was founded when the Grand Trunk Pacific set up its division point there, and the railway became the lifeblood of the community.

The model was paid for by the McBride Model Railroad Society.
