Please help with Micro Train coupler conversions

Hi, I am still fairly new to the hobby and need some help with getting the correct micro train coupler conversions.

I have a Con Cor Bay Window Caboose (1251-A Santa Fe) and a Life Like 0-6-0 Steam Loco (7781 AT & SF).

The guy in the shop I bought these from said I needed conversion kit 1114 to convert the loco.

However, looking at the tables on the Micro Trains web site I am not sure this is the case.

Please can someone let me know if this is the correct conversion kit, and if not which one I need for the loco and also which one I need for the Caboose.

Thanks very much

Carl, I'd suggest going to the Micro-Trains web site...someone did say that they had all the conversions listed there. Perhaps the shop personnel made a little mistake, or perhaps the conversion set was changed and there is an update.

Thanks very much for this. (so why did the guy in the shop sell me 1114 I wonder?)
