Exterior: The trackside loading design is typical, characterized by a single board and batten door and double single sash window in a bay that is inset from the exterior wall. A second similar window is located to the east of the loading area. The original loading spout for box cars is in place. The existence of this window indicates that the bin does not run to the exterior wall on the east side and that there is a space for between the last bin and the exterior wall storage to the east of the loading area.

The driveway has a heightened shed roofed second storey, presumably to house a grain cleaner. A braced shed roofed extension protrudes from the side of the driveway floor, a set of steps once led up to a door to this extension that faces the entrance ramp. A second braced extension protrudes further to the east, and has two sets of double hung single sash windows to give light to the driveway work area.
Interior: Air hoist still in place. Air compressor still in working order - scale appears not to be working.
