Re: Branchline reefer rolling resistance

Brian Carlson

I'm curious, I use the Reboxx took, and Reboxx, Branchline, and IM semi-scale wheels. I hand fit trucks with an appropriate wheel set that provides some side play but is not sloppy, and I have very free rolling cars that allow 30 car trains on 2% grades(I haven't tried more) Why go to the added trouble of lubing the wheels? I assume neolube doesn't attarct dirt that would be another drawback.  How long are the trains are you guys pulling?
