The Canadian Wheat Board began construction of a new grain elevator near St. Adophe, Manitoba in 2015. Pouring of the concrete began on May 4 and by July 2015 the build was well under way. It is scheduled to begin receiving grain in March 2016.

The St. Adolphe grain elevator will have a capacity of 34,000 tonnes and will feature a 134-car loop track connected to the CN Letellier subdivision. The elevator will be able to load over 1,600 tonnes/hour into the rail cars.

The Fork River grain elevator is located in the small community of Fork River between Dauphin and Winnipegosis.

Fork River Grain Elevator 20150627 SLB-8

This elevator is a former Manitoba Pool elevator. It had a low annex, built in 1940, but that was torn down between 1988 and 1996, and replaced with the steel bins seen here. The large bin was added sometime between 2010 and 2014.

Fork River was on the CN Winnipegosis subdivision, mile 10.4. Fork River lost its rail service in the late 1990s when the remainder of the subdivision was removed.
