RETROactive has posted an updated list of Alberta grain elevators. According to their list, there are 110 wooden grain elevators remaining on the railway rights-of-way.
There have been lots of additions in the first 11 days of March, 2018! Thanks to Adam Bouvier, Gary Rich, Marc Simpson and Michael Truman for their contributions this month.

I’d like to issue a warm welcome to my friend, Jason Paul Sailer.
Jason and I have gone railfanning and elevator fanning several times, both in “his” province of Alberta and “my” province of Manitoba.
A few elevators he has contributed photos of include:
BW Bandy travels the back roads in Alberta and beyond, looking for interesting buildings and signs to photograph and share. His blog Everybody Has To Be Somewhere is well worth reading, both for the photographs but also for his wry sense of humour.
