There is one grain elevator in Culross, Manitoba, a Paterson Grain elevator. The elevator is fairly unusual in that it has no annex, giving it a limited capacity of 2,850 tonnes. The Culross grain elevator stands beside the CP track and near the few houses remaining in Culross.

This elevator was built in 1982 and one of the last wooden elevators built in Manitoba. Later grain elevators have been of concrete construction.

At one point there was another Paterson elevator in Culross, with an annex. It was built in 1920 using material from Stoughton. It was demolished.

Culross is served by the CP Glenboro subdivision.
