"This book chronicles, in word and picture, the history and development of the Budd Company's Rail-Diesel-Car, better known as the RDC. The story evolves around a search for a self-contained, self-propelled railcar to cut costs on suburban and branch lines. This book describes Budd's experiment with a stainless steel rubber-tired railcar, the first RDC prototype, Budd's entry into the stainless steel car business and the birth and growth of the RDC car. A vast appendix features every carriers which operated RDC cars, a description of how the cars were used, route maps, and rosters of each railroad."
