Commonly known as the "RDC," the motorized Rail Diesel Car generally operated in rural areas where ridership and mail/parcel transport
were too low for regular passenger train service. When first introduced, the RDC was proclaimed to be the savior of branch line and suburban
service. It was heavily used as a commuter service workhorse (and still is currently in some locations!). Capable of being operated by a
motorman from either end of the car, these units could be used independently or combined into a multi-unit.
