I found this sitting on the rail siding in Parkton, NC. I've never seen one and thought initially that it was a luxury Pullman car. The steps had been removed but, I was able to climb up and get an inside shot which, regrettably was through a vandalized window. Other than some resizing these are straight from the camera. Enjoy!

A couple more of this RDC car to expand the thread. I found this to be interesting, a rail-car of a prominent railroad in the NorthEast to end up as a lonely after-thought on a rail siding in the South East.

Sorry, but in the "Share" areas IMAGE POSTING RULES only allow 2 attachments by the OP per thread, OR 8 embedded (linked) images, OR a combination of both totaling 8 per thread. (Maximum 1024 pixels on any side.) You can always just post a link to more, though, or better yet, post a link to a gallery so we don't have to click on each image link.
Some exceptions are group threads, like "Show Me...", "Post your best...", equipment reviews, Tutorials, etc.
You may add a few additional photos if requested, but only in a reply to other member's post and request.

Yes, the were called Budd cars here as well. Very few are left in operation today. They had twin Detroit Diesel 6-110 engines that developed 275 hp each and were coupled to each truck by a hydraulic torque converter transmission.
