Passenger & freight cars
On the South Manchuria Railway and the Manchukuo National Railway - both built by the Japanese - passenger and freight equipment was very strongly influenced by American design; until the 1920s, most stock was American-made. Passenger stock would have to be scratchbuilt, but a number of American prototype freight cars currently available in TT (Bill Dixon's two-bay hopper, the Gold Coast Fowler boxcar, the Joma gondola and tank car) are close enough to Manchuruian types to be used as-is. As such, it's completely within the realm of possibility to model a 1930s-1940s Manchurian branch line in TT scale. This also applies to the equipment of the Chōsen Government Railway of Korea, with which there was significant interchange traffic.
