A wooden grain elevator at Ashville, on the Togo Subdivision of the Canadian National Railway in what is now the Municipality of Gilbert Plains, was operated by the British America Elevator Company and, after 1940, by National Grain. Its capacity in 1972, with an associated wooden annex, was 80,000 bushels. It was later used by the United Grain Growers. The elevator was removed from the site between 1995 and 1997.
