One of British Columbia's largest cities, Prince George is situated at the confluence of the mighty Nechako and Fraser Rivers. The area first began to develop in 1807 when a fur-trading post was established in the vicinity, aiming to capitalise on the convenient transport opportunities. It was named Fort George after King George III, and was a great commercial success. It was therefore no surprise when the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway announced plans to route the railway close to the town.
The line was positioned to serve a few small communities in the region, which were then all amalgamated into the new city of Prince George in 1914. Surrounded by dense woodland, Prince George enjoys a picturesque setting and is a popular place to visit. With its lively downtown, the city is a firm favourite as an overnight stop on the Skeena train.
