By the late 1800s, transcontinental railroads were uniting the nation. The Southern Pacific was the first to cross the Mojave Desert in 1883. Train routes provided economical transportation for raw materials like minerals and cattle to larger markets such as Los Angeles. Short lines developed, creating a web of routes serviing remote desert valleys.
