A single-purpose machine for reprofiling locomotive tires has been designed to machine tires without removing the axles from the vehicles. The machine is not intended to replace wheel-turning lathes in main workshops. The machine is operated by electrohydraulic power, and reprofiling is carried out with two built-in cutters operating simultaneously, and on the climbing miller principle. The truing machine can be supplied for 4-ft. 8-1/2 in. gauge and arrangements are being made for its manufacture to suit other gauges.
