B-1-76-pechot-bourdon-1a OO9
rue_d_etropal There were no tender locos, but I needed someway to power a small 20hp Simplex. Not perfect, but there are no r2r chassis this small now(Kato tram one used to be suitable but no longer available).
rue_d_etropal Possible chassis might be this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Super-Mini-Size-Motorized-Chassis-TU-KOPPEL-Tsugawa-Yokou-14036-N-scale-/361613745713?hash=item5431dbde31. There are not many small steam loco chassis in N gauge. If you mean the Kato 103/5/7 , then not sure, I know Tom Bell(Tebbee) has some locos designed to fit. I used the bogie one under a wagon to push a snmall Simplex.
rue_d_etropal tricky. a standard lsteam loco chassis might fit. Otherwise look through various Japanese chassis and one might be right length, or could be modified. The Kato ones are not right length. There are some small 040 locos available which might fit.

rue_d_etropal have successfully fitted this chassis. almost as though I designed bidy to fit it. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tomytec-HM-01-Hakotesu-Powered-Motorized-Chassis-N-scale-/201636656170?hash=item2ef27b342a
rue_d_etropal https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/351737176981 is the one that fits. It is a very good fit, just a bit of the top of the Tomytec body each end and it fits in. It even comes with N gauge couplings so Peco OO9 ones can be fitted.
rue_d_etropal Tomytec make a small box like chassis available from PlazaJapan on ebay. look for Tomytec HM-01 Hakotesu Powered Motorized Chassis N scale

rue_d_etropal not sure. I designed original in diffferent scale, and even then it was tricky. Wheels on prototype are bigger than normal bogie wheels, so a standard lsteam loco chassis might fit. Otherwise look through various Japanese chassis and one might be right length, or could be modified.

rue_d_etropal @fergusonanthony05@fergusonanthony05@fergusonanthony05 I have not tried but it should be possible to fit the Kato 13 or any of that series of chassis
