#1 has seen better days. While in Vermont, it was stored under a protective roof and was complete with cab and all.

In February 1982, while in Bellows Falls, VT, a building collapsed on the engine destroying its wood cab and causing other damage. This event plus a decade of neglect has resulted in the condition that the engine is now in.

 is missing the sand dome, headlight, front number plate, bell and hanger, and whistle. The boiler jacket is gone causing penetrating rust to form through the smoke box. The pilot beam is entirely rotten and the front draft gear has torn loose. Hand rails and ladders are either missing or in poor condition, as are the running boards. The tender also has a number of structural problems. The front and rear wood breast beams and coupler pockets are rotten, causing the couplers to sag. The wood deck supporting the cistern needs replacing. The tender's rear headlight is missing. In short, the engine and tender are in poor condition.
