The theme for the second half of August will be "Grain Elevators and Grain Cars". We haven't had this theme yet, so I am looking forward to seeing some great photos!

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

I model transition era, but a while back I picked up some cheap modern cars at a flea market to practice weathering. Here’s a covered hopper I played with.

Grain Elevators on John Rahenkamp's HO layout with a blurry steamnut thrown in as a bonus.

Even out here in the northeast, you see quite a variety of grain cars during the harvest season.



I caught this vintage car in the NS yard in Hillburn, NY in 2005.

Here are a few pictures of the many grain elevators on the South Bend Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad in its last couple of years. I couldn't make up my mind on what pictures to use so I posted more than one of some of the elevators. Thanks. Tom Johnson

Wow, what a great assortment of pictures already!

Here's one that serves the large chicken farms on the DelMarVa Peninsula. It is located in Delaware.

Here is an old grain car, I don't think it is of much use now.

At the CSX tracks in Grand Ledge there is a large grain business that is no longer served by rail:











This elevator serves as a fine backdrop to countless photos of PM 1225 as it goes through Henderson, MI

These pictures were taken west of Edmonton on the CN Main just before Spruce Grove. It was late in the day 30 Jan 05. Can't get much more modern than this as Agricore built these to replace the old wood elevators



Here is the traditional red/brown elevator on the border between Saskatchewan and Alberta (CN)line. Very few of these remain. Canola replaces grain as the produce and the bright yellow is very impressive.

I can't take credit for this first photo - it is located somewhere in Ohio. If you took the photo or know anything about the structure then please let us know.



This photo was taken in Oxford PA. The building continues a little further with a covered coal unloading area.

Here is a view of the older elevator that still gets use in Green Valley

Thanks for taking a look,
