Set 6055 Prisoner Convoy was one of several smaller LEGO Castle sets that were released in the mid 1980s in Europe and other parts of the world, but not in America. The reason for this is unknown.
This set depicted a team of 3 Crusaders escorting a peasant in the holding cell of their black-and-blue prison wagon. The wagon was pulled by a team of four horses, with a knight escort riding a fifth horse. The coachman uses a spear since horsewhips were not introduced until 1988 and his uniform has the crest with the crossed axes, while the archer has the lion crest.
- This was the first of two prison carriage sets of the Crusaders, the other one being 6042 Dungeon Hunters which had only one horse pulling the carriage.
- This was the only Castle set with a carriage that was drawn by four horses, and with a fifth horse for the mounted knight this holds the record for most horses ever in a Lego set (beating the mark held by 6080 King's Castle).
