The development of railways: 1882 - 1931

"Between 1870 and 1930 the network of rail lines in the province expanded rapidly. Virtually every community in Saskatchewan owed its existence to the railway. Before automobiles and good highways, trains were the main method of travel between communities. The larger towns and cities had several trains a day heading out in all directions to transport people and freight."
