Did anybody ever figure out what happened to the No 26 Hog Island car that the BVTA owned and that burned in 1998?

Heard rumors Electric City got it but it is not on their roster like No. 5205 is. I heard maybe the Chestnut Hill Historic Society bought it but there is nothing about it anywhere?

Any leads folks?

It was stripped of any usable parts and scrapped. Wasn't much left after the fire.

Aw man, is that confirmed? I saw pictures of it post fire and the roof and interior was gone but the metal was all there and it looked salvageable, even if only for static display. Shame to lose the last of it's type in existence for a some scrap money.
