G3 Canada opens CN-served grain elevator in Manitoba
G3 Canada Ltd. last week marked the grand opening of its new grain elevator in Glenlea, Manitoba, which will be served by CN.
The facility is the fourth high-efficiency elevator opened by G3 since August 2015, according to a company press release.
Construction on the Glenlea facility began in fall 2014. It features a 34-car loop track capable of loading a full unit train while in continuous motion, and a high-capacity drag under the driveway enabling farmers to unload a super-B in five minutes or less without moving, company officials said.
"G3 Glenlea is the latest addition to our network, and is providing local farmers with a new partner for their grain business," said G3 Chief Executive Officer Karl Gerrand.
