Agents / Buyers | Photos & Maps | Sources

A 4,460-tonne grain elevator at Westroc Siding on the CPR Minnedosa Subdivision in the Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone consists of two inter-connected wooden buildings, three metal silos, and several outbuildings. The smaller 960-tonne wooden elevator to the northwest was moved here from Langruth in late 1983 and renovated the following year. The larger 1,880-tonne wooden annex to the southeast was constructed here in 1984. The metal silos, each with a capacity of 540 tonnes, were added in 1988. Owned by Manitoba Pool Elevators and its successors until around 2001, the facility was later sold to Delmar Commodities.
