Historic Sites of Manitoba: Manitoba Pool Grain Elevator / Private Grain Elevator (Dugald, RM of Springfield)

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

A 4,010-tonne grain elevator in Dugald, on the CNR Minaki Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Springfield, was built in 1948 to replace the original elevator destroyed by a fire spread from the burning wreckage of the Dugald Train Disaster during the night of 1 September 1947 when Passenger Extra 6001 West collided with Train No. 4 standing at the Dugald station. A wooden crib annex was added in 1960 and three steel silos, each with a capacity of 500 tonnes, were built in 1988. Formerly operated by the Manitoba Pool Elevators and its successor Agricore, the facility was sold into private ownership in late 2001.
