Adjusting wheelset gauge


Justin Walker <justin@...>
 

I have been completing maintenance on a number of freight cars including ensuring the gauge on wheelsets is correct and have come across some stubborn wheelsets that are under-gauge. I have tried the usual method of twisting the wheels on the axle but these particular sets are refusing to budge. Given the sharp point I dont see any obvious way of using the NWSL Puller without damaiging the axle tip.

How are others getting around this issue?

Cheers
