At one time, Alix had three railways.  Its first one was the C.P.R. line from Lacombe to Coronation; its second was the Grand Trunk Pacific branch line from Tofield to Calgary.  The C.N.R. eventually took over the G.T.P. and the Canadian Northern.

At the Alix Wagon Wheel Museum, visitors can learn more about the railway history of this area and see historical photos of railway construction and early railway accident that occurred near here.  There are books and narratives of railway history available for browsing.
