I do believe that all 12V trains were sold in blue and gray track eras in all of Scandinavia.  I'm not sure about Spain and Portugal.  TLG seemed to have a smaller selection of items to sell in those 2 countries.

As 7750 was not available for sale in France, United Kingdom and Italy (see image below from my FR/UK/IT Train Catalogue) it's almost certain that it was not available on the Iberic peninsula too.

Having watched Ebay and gumtree in UK for the last 10 months, I have seen all 12v trains and sets except 7821 but I think this sets appears in the UK catalog.

Thanks for reminding me about the 7750.... yeah it had a very limited production area.  I'm not even sure it was sold in Scandinavia?  The only box version I have ever seen was with German/French/Dutch writing (for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Netherlands).  Does this even exist in Danish/Swedish/Finnish?

Reza, I checked the 1980-84 UK Full Catalogs on Brickset, and I could not find the 7750 in it.  Now it might have sold there on Ebay via a collector getting it from elsewhere, or possibly as a special order from Denmark, but it's not shown in their catalogs.

Sorry, I should correct myself:
"Having watched Ebay and gumtree in UK for the last 10 months, I have seen all 12v trains and sets except 7821 or 7750 but the set 7821 appears in the UK catalog of 1983-85."
I confirm that the box 7750 does exist only in one variant D/F/NL. I double checked this with few Danish and Swedish train fans. 
I will write a thread about all language variations of boxes of 12v trains once I get a complete understanding of all variations.. But the number of variations is interesting (if I am correct):
7710: 3 (is there a US version too?)
7715: 3 (is there a US version too?)
7720: 4 (there is a US version)
7722: 4(there is a US version)
7725: 4
7727: 3
7730: 3
7735: 3
7740: 3
7745: 3
7750: 1
7755: 3
7760: 3
7810: 3 (haven't seen a photo of DK/S/F version)
