The PRR had one! Class Glf #250000Rich,
However, the basis of that conversion was NOT the USRA hopper, which is the basis of the Tichy kit, it was the GLa. Those interested in this singleton car can buy a laser cut Bowser GLa with resin side panels from Stan R. Likewise, the homebuilt panel sides on the Wabash do not match the USRA car, but again, Stan R has come to the rescue (while as previously noted - John can use the Tichy car for a minority panel side variant on the Wabash that was rebuilt from the USRA cars).
