A album dedicated to Budd RDC & SPV's from red lions pla

Discussion about RDC's, "doodlebugs," gas-electrics, etc.

Here's a link to some of my photos of Amtrak RDC's in service on the Springfield Line in the early 1980's. Jaap has a few in his album already, but there are a lot more he hasn't.

Great photos, thanks. I especially like the one with three matching RDC's- they really bring back memories. The RDC's were nice pieces of equipment.

I'm trying to find any pics of Conrail operated RDC's on the Danbury Branch in the late 70's early 80's (became Metro North/ConDot).
I rode these everyday after school and in the summer in my 'tom sawyer' years.

Just when you think you have Dutch figured out, you are proven wrong...

Dutch, if you don't like running electric MU's, why do you like diesel MU's? Especially the seldom powered vehicle.

I always liked the RDC's and SPV's besides operating their breakdown gave you a challenge as engineer to get it going again.
Those EMU trolley cars are no challenge.
