Budd offered its RDC in five major variations.

The RDC-1 contained coach seating only, the RDC-2 was a combination coach-baggage, the RDC-3 was a combination baggage-mail-coach, the RDC-9 was a trailing coach unit with no cab and only one motor, and the RDC-4 was a shorty RPO/baggage only.

The Budd RDC (Rail Diesel Car) was a hugely popular passenger car and locomotive in one, purchased in large quantities in the 1950s by railroads eager to reduce the losses from offering passenger services.

Economical to purchase and operate, the RDC was a huge success.

There are still RDCs in mainline service today.

The RDC-2 contained a 17-foot baggage section followed by a coach section with seating for 70 passengers.

It contained a common toilet at the end of the passenger section. The baggage section had a 4-foot wide door on each side.
