7/19 - Buffalo Elevators - Now and Then - Brian Wroblewski

The Lake & Rail Elevator on the Buffalo River as work continues on the dockside hopper installation. A set of square holes have been cut into one of the bins for the installation of a receiving hopper to accept cargo from a self-unloading lake boat. The building was recently reactivated to store corn and grain for local industry and for distribution downstate. The goal of this new construction was to start getting marine cargo deliveries by the time of the Fall Grain Rush later this year.

This view shows the last boat to unload at the Lake & Rail, the Kinsman Independent, back in September of 2000. The building is roughly two miles upstream from the lake which requires a vessel to transit 3 bridges and 3 major turns to reach it. The 90 degree bend in the river below the elevator dock can be seen to the right hand side of the photo, looking down the reach towards the ADM Standard Elevator. The ADM Standard is currently the highest upstream dock that commercial traffic has been using in the recent past.

Here is a shot of Old School grain unloading in Buffalo Harbor showing the Independent "Rigged Up" at the Lake & Rail. Grain Scooper workmen can be seen down in the hold using a complex system of scoops, buckets, and hand shovels to get the boat's cargo out and into the Marine Unloading Leg Tower.
