Extra 8133 South was the return movement of Train 24 that departed Kenville at 0900 and worked it's way to Windsor. The train was not liked by the crew which was normally made up of junior men. Long hours, working outside in whatever the weather, having to wait for any other train, and to top that off, Kentville to Windsor and back was only 61 miles... and the job paid by the mile.

Extra 8133 South waits in the Windsor yard for M-21 to head north.

8133 waits in the hole for a northbound empty gypsum train to go by.

Made it to the Hantsport yard but have to stay clear of the mainline for Train 50 before they can start their switching.
