Please forgive my ignorance, but how do you guys know all of these? Is there a website or book that shows all engine/locomotive models ever produced? I'd love to learn more about this all.

Also, I'm creating my first layout and would love the engines and rolling stock to be as realistic as possible. How do I know if the engines and rolling stock I use are prototypes of the real thing?

Just reading every-thing that you can about railroading has done it for me. After a while you start to notice things(SD's have 6 wheel trucks as aposed to GP's having 4 wheel trucks).

Some people use railroad guidbooks Trains Magazine published a good one but it just went out of print(I'm sure that you can find it pretty easly).

As for your second question there are two ways. After a while you learn things such as when a railroad swiched a paint scheme on their locomotives. For other things it is usaly pretty easy to find what you are looking for. You can usaly find it on the internet(although I prefer books they can get $$$ really fast so only get ones for the roads that you like).
