I like this one Ryan! What is the large round grey building used for? I've not seen a building like that here.

Thanks Pam! It's a silo. All the elevators in my collection have one or more silos attached. I just thought that's how they came. Maybe all these elevators were built too small, then later expanded by adding silos? (This is the same elevator pictured in the previous photo.)

I was wondering if it was one. It just has such a huge circumference I thought it might be something else.

Ah, a lot of the silos I see around here are wide rather than tall. I think it's the plains mentality. Why build up when there's so much space to build out? :)
