    Default Train Master @ Mina, Nevada

    Originally posted by Rochelle McBride


    : Does anyone have any information on Mina, Nevada? I am looking for any informatin on a Charles McBride who lived in Mina from the early 1900's to his death in 1942. He was the train master for the narrow gauge railroad there which we believe to be the Nevada & California RR. He met and married his wife Helen Faulkner while she was working at a diner there after her car broke down traveling from Missouri to California and she became stranded in Mina. I know this is a Ghost Town BB but thought one of you might have some history on the area. We have actually been to Mina as I used to live in Reno and yes it does definitely qualify as a semi-ghost town. The population left there totals 200. Anyway, any help would be great.
