Glossary Results for Word "H-Spoke Wheel"

H-Spoke Wheel A railway wheel in which the shape of the spokes resembles a letter ‘H’ in cross-section. On the LNWR these were made of cast iron (rather than cast steel) and used extensively on goods engines which travelled at slow speed. Other railways adopted similar wheels, including the NLR and the GWR.
