Hi

Did you mean from Pivot from boggie to the other boggie on the same 23m chasis or the space between the inner wheels?

Regards
Graham :D

Distance between truck centers in US parlance. I think what you're calling a "pivot" ie. the pin on which the bogie pivots. Same as the distance between center of the truck bolsters.

I make it 36.7 mm between centres of the bogie pivot screws.
