Re: "Western" air dump cars

Hi Greg, I've been mulling this over, because I know I have seen the Western logo in print somewhere. There have been brochures and/or old magazine ads from Austin-Western for sale on eBay occasionally; you might try browsing there. Many of the sellers have vast collections of such items, so an inquiry may unearth what you need.
Good luck, Rick Aylsworth

Can anyone direct me to a good image of the "Western" logo that was
applied to air dump cars manufactured by the Western Wheeled Scraper
Co., later the Austin-Western Co., and also (presumably under licence)
by Eastern Car Co.? Photographs in the 1928, 1946 and 1953 /Car
Builders' Cyclopedia/ all show what looks like the same logo but aren't
clear (or large) enough to discern any detail.
