Yes it dose slew but only 3.60m ether side of center.
If you look at this picture you will see rollers fitted to the outriggers, when the outriggers are deployed the crane will rotate on top of them:http://patrimoine5rg.free.fr/ferroviaire/wagon/DSC_4387.jpg

This is a link will give you a bit more of its details:http://www.reddit.com/r/MachinePorn/comments/1i9poq/diplodocus_eptvf_track_laying_crane_of_the_5e/

This is a link will take you to shots of it in action:http://patrimoine5rg.free.fr/ferroviaire/wagon/diplodocus.html

This is a link to Google maps of its location:https://www.google.fr/maps/@48.7980563,2.0952102,130m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=fr

Attached a postcard from the Robert Forsythe Collection. A pencil note simply says "Liege crane". The head engine is an erstwhile Prussian T16 0-10-0T. Belgium received 36 after World War One. You can just see a large smokebox running number on the right hand engine. Balance of probability is that this is "Ex UK NER CME16, ex Army no.??, supplied for the NER, requisitioned from Gateshead by the War Office 1914, this later became SNCB no. 310/04, stated as Cravens 1912, and retired from WDT Kinkempois in 1985." the one now on display at Schaerbeek.
