Re: What Kind Of Wheels Are These?


Actually, they are bolted together with restraining side plates…. not riveted.

This is a link to a Leslie Jones image of a train wreck at Atlantic, MA. The date range for the image is a very broad 1917 to 1934.


What caught my eye were the wheels. They appear to be riveted.

Can anyone provide some background on these wheels?
