A 35,000-bushel wooden grain elevator at Deloraine, on the CPR Napinka Subdivision in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester, was opened by Federal Grain around 1929. Annexes increased its capacity in 1951, 1955, and 1961. Sold to Manitoba Pool Elevators in 1972 and operated as its “C” elevator at the site, the elevator and its three annexes were destroyed by fire on 29 November 1974.
