    Does anyone know the story behind this series? They use the same couplers as the Big Big Train and, from the photo on the wagon boxes, the similar red track.

    The blue "buck wagon".

    The wheel sets appear to be similar but the flanges are deeper. This means it does not run on fine-scale (e.g. Lima) track.

    The long wheel-base means that they are reserved for 2′ radius curves, and for storing small spare parts on the work table.

    Rummaging around in some old crates yesterday I found that I had kept the boxes. Here is a scan:

    Lincoln O-Gauge rolling Stock boxes.

    Note the price. Adjust for 48 years inflation!

    I guess that if they used the term “goods wagon” and fitted buffers they are likely to be British.

    Looking on eBay etc. Lincoln International made a variety if toys including a Lancaster bomber and Lady Penelope’s Rolls Royce, so look to be a UK brand. They seem to have been made in Hong Kong and a couple of the train auctions were in Italy, so were also sold elsewhere.      …thinking about it the clue was in the name I suppose 🙂
