Has anyone replaced the bogies of a Marklin Maxi F7 loco with another make as I bought one a while ago where one bogie had fallen apart? I was wondering in AristoCraft or USA Trains would fit.

You might be able to make them fit..
BUT..........
Both of your suggestions use different makes of motor to the Buller. - I would think they would have very different characterisitcs to each other if you mixed them.
Or are you thinking of swapping both?

I would have to swap both. I was wondering if anyone had done it. The Marklin bogies don't seem robust enough to take the weight of the metal body, made worse as this has been converted from track power so has battery etc inside.
