Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A 4,560-tonne wooden grain elevator in Shoal Lake, on the CPR Bredenbury Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead, was formerly operated by Manitoba Pool. It replaced an earlier elevator built in 1973 that was destroyed by fire in 1980. Closed by Agricore in mid-2001, the off-track building was later used for private grain storage.
