WHEEL MILEAGE PERFORMANCE ON ORE CARS OPERATING OVER THE QUEBEC NORTH SHORE AND LABRADOR RAILWAY

The content of this paper reports the mileage performance between wheel reprofiling that is associated with both nonheat-treated and rim heat-treated wheels applied to 3000 high-capacity ore cars. Train operating speed is in the 35-mph range. Data are presented which compare the performance of the two wheel classes and demonstrate the life-range characteristic relative to a series of wheels. Incidence of wheel defects is given. Discussion is included of the effect that track condition and rail lubrication have on wheel wear.
