Somebody in this forum who had converted Bachmann 0n30 up to 0 scale? Think about splitting the underframes and widen to fit 32mm track.
Sir - would you mind very much showing us what you would like to replicate/achieve? I'm having a hard time trying to figure out why you would want to double the gauge of the track, yet retain the tiny narrow-gauge outline of the rolling stock. I just put a Bachmann 0n30 car on a set of standard gauge trucks, and to say that it looked rather odd would be a kindness.

He explained it in the third post of this thread..
he simply wants to take small locomotives, which are sold as On30 locomotives, and convert them standard gauge..
to model Norwegian mine locomotives, that were small, built in the USA, but standard gauge..
So the small Bachmann (and the like) On30 locos are a good starting point, they just need to be regauged..
that is all there is to it..
