Question: Railcars at Promontory

From: "Harold Unruh"

I have searched the internet for information regarding the Cars that were attached to the Jupiter and the #119. I am trying to create a HO train layout, using the golden spike theme. Did both trains have the same cars attached? What order was each train using to attach the cars? Did the Caboose on each train have a particular style? What about sleeper cars, passenger cars and freight cars etc. I would like to know where I could find a complete list for both locomotives, with the description of each car. If you could assist in this matter, it would greatly be appreciated. Thank you!
