Rural grain elevators like the prototypes for the Walthers Cornerstone Valley Growers Association Steel Grain Elevator were important developments.
The elevator was the center of many rural communities.
Many of these older buildings are still active today as stand-alone facilities or as part of larger grain and feed mill complexes that sprouted up around them.
Steel elevators came into use in the 1920s as steel sheets became affordable in the USA.
With its colorful signs and period styling, this corrugated-metal elevator model is perfect for your layout and your favorite era from the 1920s to today.
The kit includes the main elevator, plus a wood storage bin and wooden office, all with realistic wall textures.
Separate doors and windows add to the realism, along with colorful decals for several grain companies.
