|HO Scale Budd Universal Rapid Transit (BURT) Cars|
The Budd Company of Philadelphia developed this car as an off-the-shelf, generic 75' design for startup transit systems. 290 cars were delivered in two orders to Baltimore's MTA and Miami's METRO system in the early-mid 1980s. Both fleets still serve their respective cities today.
This model is made from all-new tooling, and uses a new CAD-designed, 3D-printed pattern for the body shell. The frames and trucks are 3Dprinted and are available direct from our Shapeways shop. The entire kit is designed to take advantage of the benefits of all the processes used. The cars are built in married pairs, and the kits are sold in pairs. A ready-to-finish version will also be available, with silver-painted bodies and Intermountain 28" wheels.
