I'm new to LEGO, so forgive me if this is a simple question. I purchased a lot of 30 Duplo Train Base from eBay.

Below is the picture that accompanied the listing. There is a disclaimer stating: (Stock Pictures colors of trains may be different)

What I received aside from the 20 that fit the Duplo Train Base plus 10 of these train bases:

The LEGO DUPLO Creative Suitcase 10565 shows the train base with a pincher tip and not a closed loop:

Not sure, what the other 10 train bases I received are. The 10 cars do seem to say DUPLO inside the circle if I look closely.

These 10 are Duplo Vehicle Car Base 2 x 6 with Hitches and Red Wheels (Old)' (4883cx2) and came in Red, Blue and Yellow

  • +1 for Lego floor :) Yes, it sounds like they are the vehicle car base and not train base?

  • As far as I can see they are same parts, where 10 are old version (till 1992) and the other 20 Duplo Chassis 2X6 the updated version (from 1993 - now)

  • There is a simmilar looking part that can run on corresponding duplo tracks Duplo Train Base 2 x 6 with Red Wheels and Swiveling Coupling' (4559cx1). I don't know if Lego released different types of track over the years, and if they are all compatable with each other.

  • The car base w/ hitch fits, but it more loose than the train base.

A legitimate duplo train part will have the word Duplo imprinted inside each round stud, like you see in the image here, sorry for the fuzzy pic.
