New Wheels and Bearing Caps

A new wheel bearing is seen on this car. April 1 2023 CN race course yard.
While out railfanning this spring I came across a group of cars next to each other being switched that have had some wheel work done to them.  Not often do you see a few in a row. This detail is something modelers don't emulate very often but it does add interest to ones models...George Dutka  

On this car the wheel had been changed out with a new roller bearing cap applied. Note how much rust is found on a new wheel.

On this tank car it appears the wheel and bearing cap has been just replaced. The other wheel seems like it is fairly new also.
