I can't think of a reason they could not (as long as the track is 100% done)

As far as I know, the track is not 100% done, but they are getting there... they're making progress!

Aren't they on like the last bridge or something? I know it's almost done (let's PRAY we don't get some monster hurricane this year. That would be bad ).

The tender was used to keep the axle load down to an acceptable level.  She would weigh too much with the tanks full, so their solution was to add the tender to spread out the weight.

also it was so there was enough water for the journey to hockessin

Actually, it was to my understanding that they never carried water in the tanks....always from the T-215.

Fair enough, but could it have made it to Hockessin on just its saddle tank water alone?
 
**Clarification: if the saddle tank had been used instead, supposing bridges weren't an issue**

I believe the issue was the bridges couldn't hold a heavy 2-8-2T loaded with water so the weight was spread by putting the water in the tender and NOT using the saddle tank.
