|#87101 HO Scale Budd SPV-2000 RDC|
The SPV-2000 was Budd's intended successor to the RDC, but was not the commercial or technical success that the RDC was. Only Amtrak and Metro-North placed significant orders, and the cars were plagued with mechanical troubles that got them pulled from service in the mid 1980s. Amtrak rebuilt their cars as nonpowered push-pull cars for Connecticut commuter service. Amtrak cars have diaphragms but are otherwise similar to the Metro-North units.
