Arden Grain Elevator

The Arden grain elevator stands next to the CP Minnedosa subdivision. It does not appear to be active. There is a sign on the elevator for the Wheat Belt Community Futures project, now known as Community Futures Westman.

The elevator has a capacity of 2,720 tonnes.

It appears to be two elevators, a larger central elevator flanked by an annex on one side and a smaller grain elevator on the other side, turned 90 degrees away from the normal orientation for an elevator. It is possible that the smaller elevator was a Lake of the Woods or Western Canada Flour Mills elevator, as both were present before 1940.

Helston Grain Elevator

The Helston grain elevator

The Helston grain elevator is located northeast of Carberry, Manitoba, between Carberry and Gladstone. It was on the CN Neepawa subdivision.

The elevator can be reached by a grassy path from a nearby road. It is about a five-minute walk in.

Here is a view into the elevator itself. The pipe that was used to load rail cars is visible from the top of the photo, and in the background one can see where the chutes from the bins converge.
