Hello. I'm investigating some diesel/hydraulic locos for my tight layout. I have a question about the bogies/trucks - do they rotate individually, are are the fixed in place? This loco is 75mm long and imagine if the trucks don't rotate they will want a wider radius than I have with my layout. Another option is a Class 212 which is 60mm long.

Hi. The bogies move, they are not fixed.

Unless the track is real tight like those which have become popular with the new shortie engines, you should not have problems. For certain, it should work with any Marklin track.

Best wishes.

What is considered a shortie engine? I am using the three axle steam engine that came as part of my starter set. It works fine on the radius I have, just could use something a bit stronger.
