Would they be an ok steel to clean off and forge?

Well being this is in the knife making section then NO! No and No... .

There are things they could be forged into. And depending How old, do you know how to test for wrought iron vs. Mild steel?, they would forge at different temperatures. In general for knives...no. unless.....

The HC RR spikes are at the upper end of Mild Steel in carbon content.  Blades made from mild steel are often called shivs (improvised knives as are seen in prisons) rather than knives.  A lot of people make KLO's from them; but there are so many easily and cheaply sourced alloys out there that are MUCH better than a spike.

Also beware that getting spikes from a RR right away is a felony and the RR police have amazing powers especially in these Homeland Security  days.
