Re: freight car wheel help

Cast iron wheels were prohibited on NEW/REBUILT cars after 1958,
but they were not prohibited from interchange until 1970.

Yes, and yes. After World War II, many cars still had cast iron

wheels, which weren't outlawed by the AAR until 1958, but it would
have been very rare for a car that was delivered with one wear
wrought steel wheels to have them replaced with anything else.
