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

A wooden grain elevator in Nesbitt, on the CPR Glenboro Subdivision in the Municipality of Oakland-Wawanesa, was brought here from Rounthwaite in 1983 and operated by Manitoba Pool Elevators, with two crib annexes beside it. The rail line was abandoned in 2014. At the time of a 2015 site visit, the elevator appeared to be in use for private grain storage.
