Abstract

In the UK, the use of similar vehicle types by a range of privatised operators gives the opportunity to assess the influence of different route conditions and maintenance practices on wheel tread damage, wheelset life and costs. This paper investigates these influences, using data obtained directly from the train operators and maintainers. By disseminating best practice it is expected that wheelset life can be improved on many fleets, with resultant cost savings.
