This car has been fitted with roller bearings, and all the manufacturers advise to use a lubricating system similar to the one shown here.

That's a 6 wheel truck, now I'm really curious about the car that it holds up off the ties.

The ATSF had Timken roller bearings in use. It's a bit OT, but I could not resist this one.

Had to go research that one.  It's a weed burner rebuilt from a steam loco.


What about this: https://sfrhms.org/members-area/archived-resources/archived-rolling-stock-photos/

Why a drop bottom on a stock car?
