The Bachmann On30 2-6-0 can be reguaged fairly easily. You need to find a Grandt Line frame kit for the loco (ust 2 pieces). The drivers can be widened out carefully to On3, the cylinder block needs to be widened with a couple of .080 styrene pieces, the lead truck wheels widened, and the tender trucks can be widened-the sideframes need to be trimmed to accomodate the new gauge. Of course, you need an NMRA OO/On3 gauge for this. I have not addressed the fiddly power pickups, the locos I have done run with onboard batteries and radio control but the pickups could be modified I suppose.
