The Goodlands grain elevator was a Manitoba Pool elevator. It is currently privately owned.
The elevator is one of the few that still have the loading arrow.
Normally the rail siding for grain elevators would have a slight slope so the loaded cars could be rolled away from the elevator to make room for the next car to be loaded. The arrow indicated the direction that loaded cars would roll. The number is a “spot number” for rail crews to know where to put cars.
Goodlands was located on the CP Lyleton subdivision. It received rail service until the line was abandoned in 1996.
