Fan Photo: Grain Elevator Scale Model

Here’s a Fan Photo for ya … this one is of a scale model of a grain elevator that is over at the Nevada Southern Railway and was sent in by Frank Carroll Photography, along with this great info about how it was used. Thanks for sharing, Frank!

This is a scale model of a grain elevator that serviced the Canadian National RR in the western part of Canada. Similar ones dotted our western plains here in the US. The farmers would pull their grain trucks over a dump pit (on reverse side from here), where it was fed up to the top of the grain elevator. A train would place the grain cars under the tube or chute you can see sticking out of the elevator about half-way up the side. The grain would be fed into the car, till it was filled, then the train moved forward to load the next car. One can see these smaller versions still across the plains, but most grain is now transported by truck to large facilities in major cities.
