I do not see it mentioned directly - the big issue with long wheelbase two-axle cars is flange binding, flange friction, and flange/railhead wear on curves.

Single-axle bogies can work, I believe LGB uses some on their gauge one rolling stock.

The question is what manner of mechanism to employ to keep the axle more or less square to the rails.
That, you are on your own to figure out.

As always, the best answer is to conduct practical tests of different wheelbase lengths on the track on which the cars will be running.
