Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator in the village of Baldur, on the CNR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Argyle, was formerly operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators. At the time of a 2014 site visit, it appeared to be in use for private grain storage but it was no longer serviced by railway tracks.
