A railway wheel & wheelset is a type of wheel specially designed for use on railways. Railway wheels have a wide variety of sizes and shapes, but all share a few common features. They are usually made of steel and have a flange on the inside edge to help keep the wheel on the rail. Railways also use special bearings to reduce friction and wear. The wheelset is the complete assembly of two wheels mounted on an axle. Wheelsets are used on all types of rail vehicles, from locomotives to passenger cars. In addition to the actual wheels, a railway wheelset also includes the bearings, axle, and anything else required to mount the wheels and allow them to rotate freely.
