Default New LGB Coaches, what did I purchase

Hello everyone. Been forever since I posted anything. Got out of the hobby for a bit, slowly getting back into. Was a local add for 4 G scale coaches/cars for $40 US and jumped on it. Now not sure what I bought or if they were worth the cost.

Car #1 is a Aristocraft flat car 46401. It is missing one of the large things on the end. No freight.
Car #2 is a LGB Santa Fe Caboose made in 1996, no model number. It has dual wheeled trucks (so 4 axles on the caboose).
Car #3 is a LGB 3007, Green with a gray roof. Someone has cut the roof and put in a skylight
Car #4 is a LGB 3010, Darker Green with a gray flat roof.

All cars are in good shape, wheels look good, all have European couplers. How should I proceed determining more info about what I purchased. The LGB coaches do not have LGB sticker in the center of the car or 1,2,3 class stickers at the ends. Assuming the previous owner removed these. Can you get replacements?

Revised; After looking at the coaches again, one has been painted (original orange ish brown). and one is a originally green. No LGB or class stickers, dose anyone make replacements?

Any assistance greatly appreciated. Not too concerned if I overpaid, cars look in good shape an should roll around the track well. Will need to put light in them soon.

Revised; added a bunch of pictures, hope this helps with my questions.

The LGB caboose with the LGB metal wheels has 2 sets of metal wheels that go for more than $20 US per pair and there are 2 pairs on that caboose.

Dan, your post is not clear that the linked caboose is not the same as the one he bought. I assume his does not have ball bearing wheelsets.

My 3007 coach has been painted dark green. Was more orange originally. Also painted over a 3rd class sticker. Trucks say LGB, wheels do not match my other LGB coaches

Here is a shoot of all my coaches. Probable should have just purchased a second set of red and blue ones. Maybe I will repaint one to match, how would green and white look? Looking for ideas

Looks like they did make one in green/white.
