These Lineol Bridge set photos are from Jean-Pierre. Unfortunately the set box is without its lid, although fortunately the box label had been saved and found in the bottom of the box. Also note the label on the side of the box is in English, so obviously from an export set.

These are pictures of another set with identical contents. This box has lid but the label on it is different. The side label is in German.
