A wooden grain elevator at Waskada, on the CPR Lyleton Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Brenda-Waskada, was built in September 1961 by Manitoba Pool Elevators to replace an elevator destroyed by fire on 16 June 1961. Its Pool corporate emblem was removed when it became part of the short-lived Agricore then closed around 2000. The Agricore signage remained on the building at the time of a 2018 site visit. It is no longer served by a railway line.
