The Alberta and Great Waterways Railway was extended to Waterways in 1921. Waterways was the northernmost point on the North American railroad grid until service was extended to Hay River, Northwest Territories. Cargo for destinations further north was shipped to Waterways, and then transferred to barges. Fleets of tugboats were then employed to take these barges to destinations within the Mackenzie River watershed. Legislation authorizing the construction of the rail line was passed in 1909. In the 1960s, the more northerly Hay River, on Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories, became the northern terminus of the rail grid
