We are very interested in the Austin-Western Road Machinery Co. The CEO of our company, W. E. Hall Co., Inc.'s father was involved in road building in the very early 1900's in conjunction with this company. He was involved in the California Highway road building at this time from Stanford down to Carpinteria.

She has an early "The Road Builder's Guide to a complete grading, rock crushing and road surfacing equipment" issued by the Austin-Western Road Machinery Co.-Chicago.

If it is possible, I would like to receive the article on the above company to share with her.

Everyone that is still wanting "hankadam" (Hank) to send you a copy of his "five page narative" on the BLH Co. - Brief History,

its right here; http://www.railroad.net/forums/viewtopi ... =5&t=28116

Just go through the thread and cut out all of Hanks "parts" until you have it all together.
Think about what you want. Decide to have it. Plan how to get it. Make it happen!

I am partially restoring an Austin horse drawn grader ca. 1880 and would appreciate any information you could supply. There are a couple of missing pieces and I am trying to figure out what they were. The grader has metal wheels. Thanks.
