To add to what Ben said:
PRR was very fond of Equipco brakes for their X31A “round roof: box cars as here:
I think Rapido will get this right on their upcoming X31A’s. 67xxx series, thru early 68xxx series, plus later, late 77xxx series.
There were a few G24 and G26 gons so equipped.
Additionally, Equipco’s were also found on some X31D, X32B, and X32D, plus some X37, X37A and X38 box cars.

"I've got 5, late steam era Equipco Brake Wheels. Does anyone know what freight cars they could be found on for a 1953 model railroad. Just need 5 names if possible. These brakewheels are round circles and not the (notched?) early Equipco brakewheels to the best of my knowledge."
This should get you started.
