Railway Wheelset and Brake Limited, formerly Railway Wheelsets was formed over 25 years ago by Mike Hart OBE to service the wheel, tyre, axle and brake equipment requirements of the UK mainline railway industry as well as London Underground.

Since that time RWB together with its dedicated distributors has supplied thousands of wheels, tyres, axles and brake components.


RWB’s extensive knowledge of the rail industry accrued over several decades enables the Company to offer its customers a unique in-depth understanding of their varied requirements.

This understanding has led to RWB servicing almost all of the UK’s rail vehicle maintenance companies and has resulted in them returning to RWB time after time not just for components but also to make use of the company’s enormous accrued knowledge.


To satisfy the requirements of the railway industry all RWB’s wheel, tyre and axle supply have RISAS approval for use on the UK mainline railways.
