No spare parts were sent with the unit, however it is operative mechanically, though the museum has no plans to operate the locomotive. It's number 603 actually, and here's a photo of her on #3 yard storage at Strasburg back in Feb, the tape that was previously covering her Amtrak identifying marks now removed:
They are awaiting space availability over at the museum, the locomotive will most likely be on Strasburg property for a while...
Have a good day everyone.
