As passenger traffic declined after World War II and railroads were losing money on passenger runs, the Budd Company set out to find a new way for railroads to provide passenger service at a profit. Their solution was the RDC (Rail Diesel Car), a self-propelled passenger car that railroads could use on low ridership routes and branch lines. Commonly known as "Budd Cars," the streamlined RDCs were designed with bi-directional, multi-unit capability and made extensive use of automotive and truck technology.
