The Budd RDC Railcars built by the Budd co. of Philadelphia PA between 1949 and 1962 were originally powered by (2) Detroit Diesel 6-110 engines each with an Allison RC2 Transmission. Although I have found references from Detroit Diesel where the RC2 Transmission may have been used with the 6-71 series engines I have never seen one with my own eyes. By today's standards this is a simple Transmission providing one range forward and one reverse with a hydraulic lockup torque converter.

Very few (with the original power train) remain in active service today with more probably found in Museums than commissioned service. Last I knew one was running in Cape May NJ, a few in Canada and a few others in Brazil, South America. I am sure there are others and possibly some in Private collections. If you know of others please email ted@allisontransmissionpart.com. I would be grateful to know of their existence.

While parts are scarce we have a dwindling inventory of parts. Mostly good used parts and a few odds and ends that are surplus to old dealer inventories we have acquired over the years. We are always interested in buying more if you have or know of surplus inventories or old Transmission cores.
