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.
Since the elevator began construction, the Canadian Wheat Board was purchased and renamed G3.
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.
