Has anyone tried to use bearisn form other hobbies like race cars slot cars for our rolling stock?

I was thinking I could covert the LGB steel wheels to ball bearing wheels.

Also improve the metal wheels in my container car set

If you are talking about adding bearings in the journals of your trucks and keeping the metal wheels you can do that. Ball bearing wheels usually have the bearings built into the wheel so you need to replace the entire wheel set. What you need to do first is measure the outside dimension of the axle before you do anything else. I just returned 200 bearings I ordered because they didn't fit the axles.

Where did you get them?
