I have several  Big Hauler freight trucks w metal wheels that squeak horrendously. Does anyone have a suggestion as to lubrication or any other solution?

I lubricate all my axle bearings with graphite powder. I get the stuff sold at hardware and home stores for lubricating locks. Kadee also sells a slightly finer powder version. I use that on the couplers

You could use oil, but it has a tendency to collect dirt, and many common oils will attack plastics. Not good.

Hope this helps.

Happy RRing,
