Lake Erie and Northern motor 333 is seen resting on the storage tracks on the north side of the Grand River Railway's Preston Shops. It is a Baldwin/Westinghouse electric freight motor, builder number 42474, built in September 1915. Wooden LE&N combine car 795 can be seen on the left, with what looks like either 953 or 955 beyond. On the right is the storage building for the Line Gang motor car M6. The back of that building housed the storage shed for the sand used on all the cars and motors. Motor 333 was one of two, originally numbered LE&N 60, built for the LE&N in 1915. It was sold to Cornwall, numbered 15, and scrapped in Longvevil QC in 1973.
