Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Coal Auger


We ran across this rusty, well-worn Salem Tri-(?)ead MC Mul-T Coal Auger (made in Salem OH) on the grounds of a strip mine in Harlan County KY.  Looks like the company just shoved it to the side of the road and drove away. Once, it was a very boring machine <snicker>.

    Who owns this like to find out who owns it and if they would sale it at a reasonable price

    • Best I can tell, this was somewhere near Darby #1 mine in Harlan County KY. The mine was abandoned. Note that the picture was taken around three years ago…anything could have happened to it in that interval.
