While thousands of Steam Locomotives went to the scrap yard at the end of the steam era, three from a small corner of southeast Saskatchewan in Canada somehow survived.
The Locomotives of Bienfait documents these century-old machines – where they are now, the people that care for them, and the turbulent coal-mining history around them. Using archival photos and interviews, our film documents the little-known history of forgotten mining camps and towns, the hardships of underground mining, and the tragic coal miners strike of 1931.
Filmed in Bienfait, SK, Saskatoon, SK, Sandon, BC, Summerland, BC, and Winnipeg, MB
