Re: RDC, information
What specific information do you need? Can you tell me what sort of project you are planning. I also need the car number and railroad as well as the Budd builder number to be more helpful. Many of these cars were rebuilt in the past by railroads as well as Amtrak, BC rail ect.
If you are looking for working drawings (builder drawings) you will not find them anywhere, but you could ask Bombardier Corp. who has all the former Budd RDC drawings for the Budd RDC. That suggestion may not be a good idea either, because Bombardier sent almost all the RDC material to a box car in Canada. No one there knows how to even look for it, if it were possible to even get to it.
I have in my posession, however, some material that you may be looking for. I got it years ago from Bombardier before they sent it all to Canada.
Please list here the material you need, or get hold of me with a phone number/email address that I can get in touch with you.
By the way, I have restored five RDC cars, so I am familiar with the problems you may be facing if indeed you are thinking of restoring a car.
