The latest and best automation and dust control systems would be implemented as well; including positive air pressure in the office area to maintain a dust-free environment while negative air pressure in the grain handling equipment area would keep the dust in these zones.With the previous elevator designs, the elevator agents had previously pre-weighed the grain into separate bins to be loaded into the railcars via the vertical elevating leg (to save time).
Tickets can be purchased at the door ($20 per person, or $18 per person for groups of 5 or more). The Board of Directors would like to invite the public to a special event this week Saturday… Our Victorian Prairie Christmas event is coming up mid-November!
to celebrate the birthday of the Coutts-Sweetgrass International Train Station, which commenced operations in October 1890 for the Alberta Railway & Coal Company and Great Falls & Canada Railway. As we start to wind down tourist operations at the Galt Historic Railway Park for 2017, the Board of Directors would like to invite the public to two separate events this week Saturday.
A few years of bumper crops and high grain prices kept the wooden elevator network humming and added well to the profits of the Pool.
With some of the surplus profit, AWP decided to do some design work with an engineer from Edmonton, by the name of Klaus “Nick” Drieger.
From pm to pm that evening enjoy a complimentary BBQ, tours of the 1890 Train Station, and some additional speeder rides! For a time in the 1980s it was the ‘Cadillac’ of the grain industry and future of what was to come, meant to replace the iconic wooden grain elevators of old (and hopefully spread across Western Canada).
