I was looking around on Flickr and came across this photo of a double-truck Birney body sitting on a trailer in Tampa:

Does anyone know what the story behind this car is? I'm wondering whether this might be Tampa Electric 402, built in 1922 and owned (or formerly owned?) by Tampa Historic Streetcar, shown here about ten years ago:

I believe at one time car 402 was stored in a building near the historic streetcar line shop, with an old St. Petersburg work car body stored outside nearby, but the work car appears to no longer be there.
