The only one I can think of is the Adams B4 tank. Peco used to do a kit, which went on an Arnold chassis. You can sometimes find them secondhand.

You don't say whether you want steam or diesel. Keithfre's suggestion is a new one on me, but there is always the dreaded Lima shunter. The body is totally fictitious but I have used the chassis under a GER tram loco kit. The main drawback is that it accelerates like Lewis Hamilton and has a top speed of about 200 mph! There are always a few for sale on eBay:

There is a Peckett W6 body on shapeways to fit a Japanese chassis. Not tried it though so I dont know how good it is.

There was also the peckett kit which also went on the Arnold chassis, and a sentinel kit which goes on the old farish HST power bogie!

 :hellosign:

Likewise, there are very few 0-4-0 loco's available ready to run in N gauge. Your best bet would be 3d printed kits available from shapeways and designed to go on a 0-4-0 chassis that you can get on ebay.

Below are a few links to some items that are available that may help:

N    Gauge  Brass  do   a   0-4-0  Peckett   which    runs  with  a  N Drive  chassis,   its   not   hard   to  built  runs   well  and   the   price   is   reasonable

If you want an 0-4-0 chassis in N gauge it might be worth looking across the pond - Bachmann, Atlas & others have made them - somewhere in my box of American N locos I have a few.

I have the Peco B4 on a Minitrix chassis with the middle wheels removed.
Or try one of the continental ones with bits removed to make appear more British?

As others have written, no RTR British 0-4-0s have ever been made for N Gauge, which is disappointing. So, it's kits, 3D prints, or hacked about US/Continental prototypes.

All of these choices involve work and a degree of compromise over scale accuracy, but we are discussing working locos the size of your thumb, so I for one am happy with some compromises.

I'd rather have the "right" loco that's off a bit, than the "wrong" loco that's more perfect, but doesn't belong in that context.

FWIW, industrial 0-6-0s are also pretty thin on the ground, so I decided to make some of my own .
