Can anyone help with Marklin type bogies. They came off some 4026 wagons that had been retrofitted. The wheels are 11mm and the shaft 25.4mm. I thought they might be Lima or Roco but I can't match them.

The bogie is definitely Lima brand, but wheels might also be Lima(unsure).
Had many of the Lima passenger cars when younger and used to swap the bogies with other cars to see which one I liked.
This one looks to be a DC wheelset as there are plastic insulators on one side of the wheel.
Hope this helps.

The bogie looks like it could be Lima or Jouef. Based on the design, it likely comes from a 1980s model of a SNCF or maybe SNCB coach.
There were a number of them, from RIC compartment coaches to local commuter trains which had that bogie design.
There was a short period of time where Lima and Jouef had already adopted a Roco type design to clip the bogie into the coach chassis, but had not yet added a close coupling mechanism.
Some models were delivered with plastic wheelsets, while others were delivered with metal wheelsets isolated on one side.

Someone used JOUEF bogies and wheels for the wagon. I don't know such long axles from LIMA.
