In the text the author describes a great number of attempts of the market Vukovar to construct a railway and attempts an explanation of the political and social circumstances that made possible the construction of the railway that was necessary for the traffic and trade connections of Vukovar. From 1841, when the Hungarian radicals pleaded for a direct connection between the Hungarian centre and the Adriatic Sea, Vukovar was part of the plans and ground plans for the railway construction, which were partially put into practice in 1878 when the connection between Budapest and Bosnia was accomplished with the construction of the Dalj- Vinkovci-Brod railway. During the same year Vukovar got its first railway connection via Borovo and Dalj as it became connected to Budapest via Sombor and Northern Bačka. The Vukovar-Borovo railway station was built in 1879, when the section from Vinkovci was extended from Borovo to the Vukovar-Priljevo railway station, that is, up to the banks of the Danube. It was extended as far as the town itself in 1891, and after that, around the town, to the Old Vukovar-Market railway station only in 1912. With the construction of the railway Vukovar in some way lost its privileged position of being the largest port on the Danube, but it still remained an important communications centre for transhipment. The new traffic situation had contributed to the isolation of Vukovar and restricted production capacities, which had remained exclusively at the local level during the whole of 19th century.
