A few other locations in the books to start construction including a couple in AB. Huxley and Vegreville. Originally they were going to be building outside of Innisfail but with Patterson jumping in at Bowden they switched over to Huxley in hiway 21. Not sure why, there’s already a Viterra and Equity right there. Reply With Quote

Nov 6, 2017 | 20:57 3 They are building east of Vegreville right now. Viterra is ahead of them building west of Veg at the moment. Not sure that there is enough grain for both, especially when there is a lot of unseeded acres. Reply With Quote

Now there's more money to be made in both grade and price spreads compared to toll handling in "the old.days". Reply With Quote

Maymont terminal has been taking grain for a couple of weeks. They can only fill it half full and leave for a month to settle. First train is rumoured to run end of Nov or start of Dec. The track is still under construction. Reply With Quote

Sounds like a story to me. Railcars are sitting on sidings waiting for rail to be finished and who would spend all that cash without port access. I would imagine very difficult if not impossible to load containers out of that facility. Reply With Quote
