The community of Makinak, Manitoba has a single grain elevator. This elevator is a former Manitoba Pool grain elevator, featuring a wooden annex and three metal bins. It was once labeled for Agricore, the successor to the Manitoba Pool.
There are two grain elevators at Bloom, a privately-owned wooden elevator and a new Canadian Wheat Board concrete elevator completed in 2015.
The Wooden Elevator
The wooden elevator was originally at Longburn on the CN Oakland subdivision. It was moved to Bloom after the Oakland sub closed in 1980. It is located on a farm and has no rail service.
The Canadian Wheat Board Elevator
The Canadian Wheat Board announced the construction of a new elevator at Bloom in March 2014. By October construction was well underway. The elevator will have a capacity of 33,900 tonnes of grain and will have a 134-car loop track connected to the CN Rivers subdivision. It will be capable of loading 1,600 tonnes/hour into rail cars.
