Only the tender has been dieselized, the locomotive itself is still intact. The diesel motors have been replaced with stronger, more powerful engines, and it can now pull trains.

What a horrible fate for a baldwin graduate.

I think that being motorized is a horrible fate for a locomotive to suffer, and I think that the museum should just restore no. 102 to operational condition, if possible.

Original tender was not scrapped. It was pointed out to me by Jeff Truckey October 2010

NRM has scrapped the original tender, along with their Menasha Woodware boxcar, and a WRX reefer (both wood cars). They have plans to scrap 25 more pieces of their equipment...1/3 of their current collection.

I visited the museum in August 2007 and the 102 is sitting outside the museum without tracks and her original SandC tender sits behind the museum. Later, Isaac.

Tender used to be a center cab switch engine. Locomotive is pushed by tender.
