Our Northern Plains correspondent HARV provides us with many scenes useful to model railroaders, and other model genres. Here he spotted this classic Railroad Grain Elevator in Wyoming.

Grain Elevators

Especially in the American Midwest and plains states, grain elevators are a mainstay of our agricultural infrastructure.  You can find them in many sizes and designs and materials.  As a kid, my class had to read a book about a greedy grain merchant who eventually was buried alive in his silo while trying something nefarious.  That created an imprint in me and I like to model silos.

I have no information about when this elevator was built but I definitely prefer these designs to (most of) concrete facilities.
