freight car wheel help

Brian Carlson

If a boxcar was built in April of 1944 with 1 wear wrought steel wheels
would they likely still be on the car in 1957. I know cast wheels were
banned at some point in the 50's but I don't know much else about the
freight car wheel technology in that time frame. Were 1 wear wrought steel
wheels state of the art then?
