Yes the 77E was designed as a 4 motor truck, but of course it would work with only 2 motors - just with less power and grip.

It has inside hung motors, while the 76E had outside hung motors - and thus a longer wheelbase.

The 77E1 was designed to have smaller wheels and thus the springing was a bit different.

I have attached a sheet showing the 77E dimensions for various gauges.
