Thats not true about Bachmann locos and Hornby track. I think the curves you are using are too tight for a CL37. Longer locos don’t like sharp curves no matter what make the loco or track is.

This is a good loco. Not necessarily from Hattons.

Hi

You might like to look at class 24, 25, 26, and 27. They all have 4-wheel bogies which may help with your problem
