I want to get an 0-8-0 engine and I see one on Ebay. It looks like a DDR era Piko loco. But I intend my layout to run on Ciode 75 Peco track. Will a DDR era Piko chassis run on this or is it too coarse?

Don't know about HO, but if they're anything like the N Scale ones the flanges are too deep and catch on the sleepers. Easy enough to fix with diesels, but harder with steam.

If it's the older "iron curtain" model it does have coarse wheel flanges & probably will not run very well - the mechanism is poor on these versions although it is quite a pleasant looking model.

I have the Trix SNCB version of the 0-8-0 tender loco - it is a superb runner & very powerful.

Some of the earlier Fleischmann 55's have quite coarse wheels too.

As indeed is the price!
