Budd RDC

The Budd Rail Diesel Car, RDC or Buddliner is a self-propelled diesel multiple unit (DMU) railcar. Between 1949 and 1962, 398 RDCs were built by the Budd Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The cars were primarily adopted for passenger service in rural areas  with low traffic density or in short-haul commuter service, and were  less expensive to operate in this context than a traditional diesel locomotive-drawn  train with coaches. The cars could be used singly or several could be  coupled together in train sets and controlled from the cab of the front  unit. The RDC was one of the few DMU trains to achieve commercial  success in North America. RDC trains were an early example of  self-contained diesel multiple unit trains, an arrangement now in common  use by railways all over the world.

AZL produced two versions of the Budd RDC:
RDC-1: an all-passenger coach and RDC-2: a passenger coach with a baggage compartment.
I have two Budd RDC-1 of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe (ATSF) Railroad Company of the first generation. Beginning March 2017, a second run with blackened underframe was produced .
