The C-130 is sold commercially as the L-100 and is in use with several
airlines and cargo operations world wide.  About 10 years back Lockheed
was also looking at mating the basic Herc fuselage with a twin engine
wing to make a short haul, lighter load cargo aircraft.  I think that
was L-400.  But it looks like that project evaporated.

There are L-100, L-100-10, L-100-20, and L-100-30 aircraft, each with an
increasing fuselage length. The L-100 is basically the same build as the
standard C-130H military model.  And the RAF has C-130H-30s that are
stretched like the L-100-30.
