Because there are lots of different builds of N2 and N gauge is a much smaller market than OO.

Also by the look of it the OO models are old tooling.

It's available as an elderly and rather dated kit from Langley, or a superb 3D body from Atso/Shapeways.

I'm building one of the latter now.

There was also a proposal for a crowd funded model a couple of years ago, but that all went quiet..

As red death has said, part of the problem is that nearly every batch differed in detail from previous ones.
