    What coaches with sleeping places or places, transformable to sleeping ones, are produced in (any) narrow- gauge H0 scales?

    none that I am aware of. The rio grande had a few narrow gauge sleepers, but i think those were all converted to coaches or other cars shortly after 1900. MR published plans for a D&RGW sleeper about 15 years ago, and i am sure NGSL gazette has done as well. You could try converting a Labelle coach, or else scratchbuild one.

    I don't think there were any...

    Narrow Gauge Sleepers.

    I don't think there were any because most Narrow Gauge lines were not long enough to justify an overnight trip.

    There are/ were, for example, 1000 mm gauge sleepers in Kenya, 600 mm sleepers in China and Vietnam, also different sorts of coaches with sleeping places were on some long 750 mm gauge lines in the former USSR.

    I meant, is something like this produced in narrow- gauge H0 scales?

    I haven't seen any commercially available HO narrow gauge sleepers.

    Assuming, like most people on this board (including myself) that you were referring only to North America. In many other countries, narrow-gauge networks were more extensive.
    Try finding models of Russian narrow-gauge, or anything at all from Kenya or Vietnam. It'll be tough.

    At one time, in Russian history, standard gauge( 4'-81/2") would have been "narrow gauge" :D :D
