Re: NP Boxcars At Grain Elevator

The elevator looks like it is in the process of being recovered with corrugated metal. Part of the job is completed, ie the roof and dump shed, but the main body has been stripped of it’s wood siding, allowing us a good look at the crib construction used to build elevators.


That is indeed a stack of grain doors visible near the elevator, just behind the ramp approach. Note also the two men in and under boxcar 21129.

Possibly grain doors appear at the base of the grain elevator.
