Rail Diesel Cars (commonly referred to by the intials "RDC") are self-propelled passenger trains.  398 RDCs were built by the Budd Company of Philadelphia between 1949 and 1956.  Many of these cars provided passenger service in rural areas where they were cheaper to operate than locomotive power trains.  A handful of the the Budd RDCs survive and continue to operate.
