The wooden elevator was originally at Longburn on the CN Oakland subdivision. It was moved to Bloom after the Oakland sub closed in 1980. It is located on a farm and has no rail service.

The Canadian Wheat Board announced the construction of a new elevator at Bloom in March 2014. By October construction was well underway. The elevator has a capacity of 33,900 tonnes of grain with a 134-car loop track connected to the CN Rivers subdivision. It is capable of loading 1,600 tonnes/hour into rail cars.

The connection to CN was made in early June 2015. The CWB became G3 during construction, and the completed elevator is now labeled for G3.
