She was later sold to Consumers Co. and in 1959 was donated to the Railway Historical Society of Milwaukee which soon became Mid-Continent Railway Historical Society. #701 was the first steam locomotive in Mid-Continent's collection and was moved to Hillsboro, Wisconsin in 1962 where she was joined by #1385 for the museum's first season. #701 was moved to North Freedom in 1963 when the museum acquired the property there.
