I used the two bogies from a TU-KIHA40000 mounted in a custom perspex box cut on a laser.  Its fiddly but effective.

The advantage of the perspex box is it doubles as the windows for the lower deck.

I had to turn the wheels to thin them by about 1mm to allow sufficient rotation in the 12.5mm width of the inside of the body.
