The Sperling grain elevator was a former Manitoba Pool elevator, built in 1926 and until recently operated by Delmar Commodities. It was last used in the fall of 2013. The elevator was on the CEMR Carman subdivision between Carman and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
According to the Sperling town web site and a UGG history document, the elevators that operated in Sperling were:
Canadian Elevator Company
Manitoba Pool, 1926
Canadian Consolidated – purchased by UGG in 1959, burned 1995
The grain elevator in Sperling was demolished in late March 2015 (news article).
The town of Sperling has never exceeded 200 people, and today it is primarily a residential town, with a few industries such as Sperling Industries and an auto body shop.
This elevator was a Manitoba Pool elevator with a capacity of 4,000 tonnes of grain in the elevator and attached annex. It became privately owned sometime during or before 2008. It has no rail service as the siding has been removed for some time.
It appears to still be in use for storage.
Katrime’s rail passenger station is now on display at the Manitoba Agricultural Museum. It is a small structure, built in 1919 by the Canadian Northern Pacific railway.
