Any freight car truck can be scavenged for Timken bearing caps as well. Every model railroader has freight car trucks laying around.

Not every modeler.  Besides, I would suspect that because of the weight of the switchers the RBs would be larger and most would have covers.  At least some models that they can be stolen from are fairly cheep on the 'bay...

Since this thread is full of all kind of speculation......

I would recommend a new thread when someone actually starts getting them in their hands.

Just a suggestion.
