When Pere Marquette was absorbed by the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, 1223 was assigned number 2657 but never had the new number painted on her.
1223 was retired from service in 1951.
In 1980 state fair officials wanted to expand the grandstands but 1223 stood in the way. The city of Grand Haven won the bidding process.
- 1223 never visited Grand Haven while in service due to her weight (400 tons).
- 1223 is displayed next to a previously abandoned Grand Trunk Western Railroad coal tower on an out-of-service industrial rail spur.
