Train Town
McBride was a significant location along the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, both during its construction and operation. Located about halfway between Jasper and Prince George, McBride became the point at which trains would replenish their supplies of fuel and water. It was also a maintenance station for crews that worked on repairing the railroad.
