Based in the UK, EFE, aka Exclusive First Editions began making 1:76 castings of older buses and trucks in the early 1990s. They were made in China, but intended to be sold in the UK.

In the mid 1990s, EFE introduced an auto transporter semi set that came with 4 sport car castings. The sports car castings were also available in (2) car window box sets. The cars modeled were an Austin Healey Sprite, MG-B and (2) Triumphs - a Vitesse and a roadster version.

In 2002, they were reissued as the Gilbow Railway Series.
