Yes.  I believe the Great Northern had a bunch that they built in their own shops.

I have some Bachmann 40 Hi Cubes in both rib side and smooth side. No waffle sides, unless they made 3 Hi Cube versions.
Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

Um, that's not a hi-cube, and Kisatchie's right, only smooth and rib side for that Bachman car. I know MT did a hi-cibe 70-footer (?) with waffles, but wasn't it MDC that did a non-hi-cube 50-footer with waffles?
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

yes, this looks like a PS car, which the MDC model is...

No doubt a kitbash is possible - taking a look at it myself here...

I sit corrected.
