Hello fellow Z-crackheads,How are you?How many of you are as pissed off as I am about the politics of this weekend?Gee... I so much enjoy watching my 401(k)/retirement plan get flushed down the toilet.On to more important issues... (rant off)Is there a Micro-Trains Z-scale photo database any where available?I know MTL has an on-line database, but it is text only without a complete description of the individual rolling-stock.The reason I'm asking is... I have two Union Pacific cabooses, #14710-2 and $14714-2. I believe there are at least two more versions of the UP caboose, #53500180 and #14716-2. Are there any more?Each of these four cabooses have different road numbers, lettering sizes and slogans printed on them.The MTL database describes the #14714-2 as "yellow with green lettering". But, as I look at the one that I have, the lettering of "UNION PACIFIC" and "UP 25602" is red.Any Micro-Trains experts out there care to point me in the right direction of a database... or, maybe provide me with some clarifications?Thank You,Alex in Tokyo

14710 slogan "Safety is the Golden Rule in Action" reporting number 203; 14714 slogan "Go Big Train" reporting number UP 25602; 14716 slogan " The Great American Car Pull" reporting number 25121; 53500181 slogan "What Do We Do We Work For You" reporting number UP 25457 In adidtion there is an Armour Yellow Maintenance of Way caboose with red lettering "MW" that was put into the Union Pacific train sets when there was no current UP in production at the time, no stock number, available only in sets. or from dealers who broke up sets. The first caboose relaeased had the slogan in red printing in a yellow box, the three later releases have the correct black lettering in a white box. the first release also does not have the letters "UP" before the reporting number
