It's certainly not clear from the pictures. The Locomotive appears to have had the connector removed or perhaps this tender does not go with the locomotive. Too many possibilities here to figure out!
Tender prob. goes with locomotive and clip was removed from locomotive. Not a big deal, they can be wired together and left together to work fine. Next off, judging from the fact there are 2 wires going to the tender i'm willing to bet the tender picks up positive and negative somehow.
