Yes you can and the Bachmann Lyn type 2-4-2 will be the same height as the higher mounts on Bachmann Thomas rolling stock.
The Bachmann Lyn also comes with knuckle blocks that suit the lower Bachmann Big Hauler coupling height. Thomas style hook & loop couplings are included too.

The Bachmann Thomas rolling stock usually come with additional coupling mounting blocks in the box that will lower the chosen coupling to the usual lower Bachmann Big Hauler height.
Some dealers keep these from sets to sell separately so check that they come with any Thomas rolling stock if required.
The black caboose is Buddy L which is the same as Bachmann Big Hauler.
