Engine 3708 on a regular freight assignment Lambton to Havelock.

Return trip on Havelock job.

Engine 2405 assisting 915 (second class freight London/Windsor) Lambton to Orrs Lake.
Notation "In line up at 5:45 A.M." indicates a delay getting to shop track to go off duty. Claimed 1 hour final terminal delay. NOTE: If push engine was actually 2405, a stoker-equipped road engine, this would have been very unusual. Assuming it was not 2205, then 2405 may have actually been the road power. Another explanation could be a trial trip to prove repair work done on 2405 before dispatching on longer run.
