Thanks Christoph,

The wheel profile shown on that web page looks very like the compromise wheel profile used in the Inner West Light Rail in Sydney to allow trams to operate over an old railway line.

It's now causing an issue because the new trams in the City and south Eastern Light Railway don't have that profile, but need to travel over the old railway to the workshop facility.
