In HO scale, Tichy wheel sets (part #3004 or #3010) are meant as loads or scenery. At the risk of coining a bad term, their axle ends are "blunt" rather than pointed.

Keep in mind that real wheel sets did not have pointed axle ends like our models. Thus a gon load or engine facility scene will not look prototypical.
A fellow listr asked for surplus wheel sets in plastic on metal axles to finish a gond load of wheels. I must humbly admit to loosing the requesters address "somewhere" in the paper pile on my desk. Please contact me off list as I will be happy to ship the now packed box of items.
