Great Northern Budd RDC Now Available

The Great Northern Budd RDC Pack has been released at Trains and Drivers. It costs €8.95, which includes 19% VAT for EU customers.

The Great Northern Budd RDC Pack includes the single Budd Rail Diesel Car (RDC) of the Great Northern railroad.

The RDC features custom couplers and sounds, real roster number, light and rain effects, animated wipers and cab controls. This add-on includes the single Budd RDC that the Great Northern owned, GN 2350. This car was a phase-2 RDC-3, bought by the railroad when their originally quite extensive network of branchline passenger service was already under severe pressure from the rapidly increasing highway traffic. This RDC saw service on the Great Northern's Butte division for several years, running the Great Falls – Helena – Butte round trip. #2350 remained with the GN until the Burlington Northern merger, soon after which it was acquired by Amtrak. When Amtrak could not find any use for this car, it was sold on to BC Rail, until it finally ended up in Oregon where it ran the Lewis & Clark Explorer excursion train in the early to mid 2000s.
