There was one big red Pioneer grain elevator in Brandon, near the Pool’s “B” elevator. It consisted of a large elevator, with what looks like a former Paterson adjacent to it, and a crib annex. It had a capacity of 11,930 tonnes. It was likely demolished in 2009 or 2010 after the nearby Kemnay elevator was built.
