The Ontario and Rainy River Railway existed briefly in the late 19th century. The rail line ran from Rainy River, Ontario to Fort Frances, Ontario with eventual plans to connect to Port Arthur, Ontario in the West and to the Manitoba and Southeastern Railway via a new Steel bridge at Rainy River. After the Baudette-Rainy River Rail Bridge was completed in 1901 the company was quickly absorbed by The Canadian Northern Railway which built a Round House, Bunks, a Hotel and several other pieces of equipment at the town. It later was taken over and absorbed by The Canadian National Railway Which still operates the line.
