Wheel Quartering – BPLW Engineering Services


Quartering locomotive driving wheels

The term ‘quartering’ is given to the process of ensuring that the crankpins of each pair of wheels (on the axle) are in exactly the same relationship to each other as all other pairs of wheels in the same chassis. In order to obtain a smoothly running locomotive chassis it is essential that among other things, the wheels should be accurately ‘quartered’

BPLW can accurately quarter wheel sets for locomotives of any type or gauge for garden railways to 7 1/4.
