Anyone know if the 69 Pirsch survived??
The engine went to Weyers Cave, VA where it served until replaced by a Sutphen in 1998. I remember seeing the 1969 ladder at a parade some time in the early 90s with the original lettering, not sure if it was still in service or privately owned.

The 1940 Pirsch ladder truck is in the hands of a private owner.
Paint is very rough now. I think the rig sits outside a lot. It is
in the Winchester VA Apple Blossom Parade a lot.
