Photo request for interior of RDC

Postby TDowling » Sat Feb 17, 2018 1:02 am

Does anyone have photos of the interiors of the West of Hudson RDCs used by mnr/njt in the 80s and 90s?

I'm sure one of the members of the group can chime in with more about where on MNRR this one ran, but this is the interior of Conway Scenic RDC #23, which according to a short history provided for a 2013 Boston and Maine RR Historical Society flyer, this was #18 on MNRR. Not sure if it was WOH though.

Been a long time, obviously, but I don't remember the Budd cars having seats like that. In my memory they were vinyl-upholstered walkover benches like on the ACMUs and the NJT Jersey Arrows.
