All the car/loco #s are on the box and listed on the website of the shop if looking online. Check out this PWRS page, it has the names or numbers of the coaches listed.

Maybe I don't understand the question.Cowboy

I have had pretty good luck with Walthers locomotives, finding at least text listings and often pictures.  I haven't gone looking for rolling stock pictures.

I'm sure a lot of my older items like Athearn BB engines and cars did not model a particular piece of equipment, but rather a class with a road number that may not have been part of that group.

After buying a Walthers GP-9M, I researched it a bit and discovered that it was a rebuild of an older GP-9.  As it happened, I was detailing such an engine at the time, so I gave it that old road number.

It takes an iron man to play with a toy iron horse.
