Only one bogie is powered so I think you could stretch a Rokuhan chassis if required. I am looking at using Z gauge chassis to power trams, but may go for diesel or electric loco chassis instead.

There are a couple of options on shapeways. I bought a tram body for Nn3 for the Rockuhan chassis and it just clicked into place and works like a dream. Only thing you have to careful of is that the materials used are brittle.

Here is one option.

The Rokuhan I have is a 4 axle bogie chassis so might be better under a coach or wagon pushing a dummy loco, or perhaps an autocoach or railbus?

I used one of the Peco white metal bodies on a Marklin 0-6-0 chassis for mine. The Peco bodies are difficult to get now I suspect, but 3D printing might be an option (although you'd have to work out how to sneak some lead in).

I know Peco used to offer some steamer body kits to fit on the Marklin 0-6-0.  Never heard of anything designed for a Rokuhan chassis, but I admit I don't follow N6.5 much.
What style of chassis is the Rokuhan?

Thanks

Many moons ago when I was building the GEM Director on a 4P chassis, I replaced the front bogie with one from the Fleischmann Dutch 4-6-0 bought as a spare part (black wheels).

You might try one of the Farish spares suppliers, BR Lines or Peter's Spares, or the Bachmann Spare's site itself. This is getting better all the time!

Quote from: Newportnobby on Today at 09:59:53 AMI have no interest in TT120 either, George, but if Hornby were to go bust on the back of it that news could have wide ranging ramifications in the model world.
Remember - if you bury your head in the sand, 4 of your 5 senses stop working ;)

That's as maybe...

...but it won't stop a lot of 'em speaking!
