I have given this some thought, and I was thinking a S/Sn3 dual gauge would look about right. It'd give the right spacing for the outside rail and you could always use S scale axles on O scale trucks and not look too odd.
Problem it, nobody makes that scale for dual gauge track, either.
If any company had, I might have made the "Bemberg area" theme for my On30 layout I'd wanted to do but knew I wouldn't get the track right for there as the entire area was dual gauge...

     The Largo Petroleum Company added a third rail for standard gauge to their 30 Inch gauge line, when building their refinery. Two Milwaukee 4wPM diesels were used one at each end to move the necessary equipment to the refinery site, at times a winch cable was used to help out if loading was to heavy for the engines.

  Yes it looks like Lionel 3 rail but there was a prototype for the track.
