Cool video. I know someone who bought one about that size and was converting it to live in. Haven't seen him in years though. His is just into Kansas and West of I-35.

Thank you for a wonderful trip back to my youth and how remarkably similar my Kansas "Prairie Sentinels" are to the Canadian heartland. Though most are now concrete, they stand out all across the flat Kansas horizon. As a teenager, I worked the railroad summers, delivering empty and picking up loaded rail cars to the elevators.
A good look at a part of farm life few city-slickers get to see.---

Thanks Byron for the trip down memory lane. I grew up in a small town which had 2 of this style elevators. Now its all super concrete silos and super tanker grain bins. Was neat to see these still in operation. Thanks. Randy

That's pretty neat. I am the supervisor at a grain elevator. I need to show that vid to the "kids" that work for me. Then they might realize how easy they have it here. We handle a bit more grain than that place does. About 1,000,000 bu. of wheat, the same for soybeans, and about 10,000,000 bushels of corn per year. Unfortunenatly no rail, all trucked in. If we hustle a bit, we could of unloaded about 10,000 bushels while watching that vid. It's a shame about old elevators like that, OSHA wouldn't allow an elevator like that around here.
