Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A wooden grain elevator at the railway siding of Graham, on the CPR Carman Subdivision in the Rural Municipality of Roland, was built in 1927 by Manitoba Pool Elevators. Closed in July 1971, the railway was abandoned in November 1975. No vestige of the railway tracks, elevator, agent’s residence, or access roads remain at the site in the middle of an agricultural field.
