This elevator was moved from its original location to a farm, and is labeled for Bueker’s Agro.
Mark Zulkoskey: Ranger was the elusive elevator of the North West region of the province. Moved from its original spot, I had much difficulty locating it for whatever reason. Any elevator enthusiast will of course realize it’s completely visible from the highway towards Leoville. But for whatever reason I didn’t catch it on my first trip, I’m thankful as it gave me the time to hone my skills (and improve my camera gear). In 2016 I made it out to Bueker’s Agro to see if I could get a chance to photograph the elevator. After meeting up with one of the owners and being given full permission to use their property as a backdrop, I got to shooting. Former British American Elevator Company, the elevator later became a National elevator when British American merged with several other companies. Finally, it became Sask Wheat Pool before being sold off. The rail line through Ranger is ex-CPR and was one of many that crisscrossed through the north western part of the province, competing with CN’s line through Spiritwood. North of Ranger the line would connect with its Meadow Lake line which would later become CN through a track swap.
