Some of you may know I'm a bit obsessed with grain elevators as well as trains. Heck, I have a whole grain elevator photo gallery for them. Here are a few I've seen this month.
This is the Viterra elevator at Pense, Saskatchewan, on the Canadian Pacific main line. This one is not new to me. I took this shortly after sunrise.
Later that morning, I shot this grand complex in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. This Viterra elevator apparently handles mustard seed, and is served by CN off the Central Butte subdivision. The elevator dominates this area of Moose Jaw by its height, rivaled only by the Parrish-Heimbecker elevator on the other side of the Canadian Pacific yard.
Just a bit west of Moose Jaw is this grain elevator, another Viterra property. It is basically right on the Canadian Pacific main line.
Lest you think there are only Viterra elevators in Saskatchewan, here is the Cargill elevator just outside Moose Jaw. Sorry for the blurry shot, it was a long distance photo.
Switching provinces, here are two views of a grain elevator complex in Maidstone, Ontario near Windsor. Until fairly recently this was served by CN off the Caso subdivision.
As I mentioned before, the Caso subdivision is now idle and the trains don't come here no more. You can see the rails are still in the ground here.
