We went to Morden, MB back in September to see the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre and also just for the drive. The route we took was highway #3 from Winnipeg to Carman, then straight south (still on the #3) to Morden. Looking at a map, you can see that CEMR's Carman subdivision parallels the road all the way to Carman.
I took the opportunity to shoot the grain elevators on the route.
The first elevator encountered was the one at Sanford. I had already shot this one back in January, so I didn't take any more.
Next up was the Besco Grain elevator in Brunkild. I'm not sure if the elevator uses the rail access, but there is another business in Brunkild that appears to use rail.
We encountered a massive Pioneer structure next, just south of Brunkild.
I shot the elevator at Sperling from a distance, so the picture isn't great.
Finally, this is the elevator complex at Homewood, MB, also from a distance.
By this time, my family was tired of the stops, so I didn't take any photos in Carman itself. Another time!
