This former Missouri Pacific steam locomotive tender was mated with MP wrecker #X-105 when it arrived at North Freedom in 1967. It was originally built by American Locomotive Co. as the tender for MP MK-63 class 2-8-2 steam locomotive #1208. The locomotive was retired at an unknown date and the tender retained for service equipment use. At Mid-Continent, it is presently used with the OSL #762 rotary snow plow.
