Transportation Company - Saskatchewan Grain Car - Railroad Equipment



Company History: Saskatchewan Grain Car Corporation (reporting marks SKPX, SKNX) was a Canadian crown corporation owned by the Government of Saskatchewan established on October 2, 1979 to purchase and rent grain rail cars for the transportation of statutory grains between Saskatchewan and export ports. The corporation was governed by the Saskatchewan Grain Car Corporation Act. In 1990 the government invested $55M in the corporation for the purchase of 1,000 new covered rail cars. Priority in the rental of rail cars was given to short-line operators in the province. In March of 2017, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that it would be selling off nearly 1,000 hopper cars as the Saskatchewan Grain Car Corporation was going to be wound down.
