Back To The Future III rolling stock

Does anyone have any good pictures of the rolling stock (log car, passenger cars, caboose) used in Back To The Future III or any similar cars?
 
I did a search (here and on Google) and couldn't find anything although I did find that the locomotive is Sierra #3 with various fake bits/paint/decoration added on but I cant find any references on the rolling stock (especially the passenger cars).

Just found this

which looks like the caboose used in the film (with some differences in lettering) although I still cant find anything on the passenger cars they used...

jonwil, I believe you're on the right track.
 
The IMDB website has a page for Back To The Future, Part III, and in that Page's "Trivia" section, it states that principal exterior filming was done at Jamestown, California.  The Sierra Railroad (now known as Railtown 1897 State Historic Park), has been used in too many old Western movies and TV shows to count from memory; it is a safe statement, I think, to say that they likely used the Sierra's rolling stock.
 
The trestle, however, may be another story . . .  (maybe SD&AE, but that is purely idle speculation).
 
 
Regards,
 
Norm
