Terminal 86 Grain facility

 
With its array of sophisticated electronic controls and mechanical devices, the terminal is a completely automated grain facility. This assures you efficient movement of grain from trucks and rail cars to silos and then to ship's hold. The two northern-tier railroads - Burlington Northern Santa Fe (www.bnsf.com) and Union Pacific (www.up.com) - have access to the terminal on a common-user basis.
