The building of the railway to Hudson Bay began in the summer of 1908. Prior to World War I the line was cleared and graded almost to Port Nelson at the mouth of the Nelson River. During the war, however, construction slowed, stopped and finally some of the steel was torn up and sent to the war effort. In 1927 work resumed on the railway in northern Manitoba. Farmers were still demanding another seaport for their wheat, closer to the source, and the "On to the Bay Association", organized in 1924, brought political pressure on the federal government. The Palmerston Report soundly quashed the idea of a port at Nelson, and the new line turned north at Kettle Rapids and headed for Churchill. In April, 1929, the track reached the mouth of the Churchill River and by August, 1931, the port facilities were in operation.
