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

A 50,000-bushel wooden grain elevator in the village of Coulter, on the CPR Lyleton Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Two Borders, with its associated crib annex and engine shed, was once operated by Manitoba Pool. Built in 1928, it closed in July 1971. Rail service ceased when a bridge was washed out during a severe storm and was not replaced. The elevator was purchased by McKinney Farms and used for private grain storage.
