Axle


Jump to: navigation, search
Train wheels are affixed to a straight axle, such that both wheels rotate in unison. This is called a wheelset.

An axle is a central shaft for a rotating wheel or gear. In some cases the axle may be fixed in position with a bearing or bushing sitting inside the hole in the wheel or gear to allow the wheel or gear to rotate around the axle. In other cases the wheel or gear may be fixed to the axle, with bearings or bushings provided at the mounting points where the axle is supported.
