Description

These wheels were manufactured at Horwich works. The wheels have been made with a mould and are being turned to smooth off the rims. Steam locomotive wheels have been made from steel since around 1870. They had previously been made from wrought iron. Locomotive wheels usually had spokes to make them light weight.
