Most urban siles were sit- uated along the rail routes and rural settlement were highest near the rail luies. The significance of the rail- road line in determining urban settlements can be illustrated by the fact lhat within Ihe re- gion only Pincher Creek has survived as a communily not situated adjacent to a rail line.
