Bay Railway Company was formed; the ancestor of the present Roberval Saguenay Railway originally carried steam locomotives and possibly linked by rail with another bridge (featured on this page) in the Chicoutimi Basin, where a pulp mill operated , ferrying pulp from the Chicoutimi mill to La Baie, about 20 miles away, using among others 0-4-0 Tank Locomotive 15, featured at In 1925, Alcan opened an aluminum plant in the area, purchased the RSR and extended the track from Arvida (now Saguenay) to the deep water port at La Baie, now transporting bauxite ore.
All through the war years, the bridge supported steam locomotives and their load, till the advent of heavy road diesels, at which time the structure was probably no longer considered safe and the adjacent concrete bridge was built and is still in daily use.
