E – The Engine Pulls Empty cars up to the elevators
“Grain elevators were the first prairie skyscrapers. Sometimes referred to as “prairie giants”, they stand out clearly against the flat landscape. You can see them from great distances. Farmers haul grain to the elevator by truck. Here it is weighed, graded, cleaned and stored until it is loaded into railway cars. The engineer will pull the loaded grain cars all the way to a seaport terminal where the grain will be transferred onto ocean going ships.”
– Jo Bannatyne-Cugnet
