NO. Concors Zephyr is the only thing close.

At one point I think there was a move to have them done by one of the smaller companies in etched metal, but they didn't get enough orders or something . . . . I haven't had enough coffee to remember who . . .

Philip, is this the company http://www.prototrains.com/?
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.

That would be the one I was thinking - I couldn't remember that Fine N Scale Products had done it before Concor.

You would think if there was enough demand for the Pioneer Zephyr from Con-cor that there would be comparable demand for an E5 and one of the 5 car articulated sets, with a two car add on.  I might argue more demand as it would be more interchangeable.
