There are two grain elevators in the town of Snowflake, Manitoba. The first Snowflake grain elevator is a former Federal elevator.
Federal Grain Elevator
This elevator became the Manitoba Pool “B” elevator in Snowflake.
The heritage of the former Federal elevator is obvious now. The elevator used to say “Federal Grain Limited – Agricultural Chemicals and Fertilizers – Snowflake”.

There is a very fine article showing how artist Christopher Walker incorporated the Snowflake Federal grain elevator into a commissioned painting.
Snowflake’s rail access was via the CP Snowflake subdivision, but that was abandoned after 1977.
