Regina's train station was a busy place.

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 the automobile and good highways the main method of travel between communities was by train. Major communities had several trains a day heading out in every direction to transport people and freight to all corners of the province.
