A new railway wagon bearing unit is in use on railway freight vehicles. The new design constitutes a two-part assembly which completely replaces the conventional roller-bearing axlebox. Production of the new assembly is much simpler, and therefore much more economical, than that of a conventional axlebox. Normal service wear is confined to the axle guard grooves of the horsehoe adapter. These are linered, and the liners can be renewed without interfering with the wagon bearing unit.
