This RDC was produced by Lionel in 1957 and 1958. It was the engine in the 2276W set, in which it led two trailer 2559 RDC units. The protoypes were some of the more popular trains in the 1950's. They were some of the first air-conditioned trains to enter service on major railroads, and were used heavily on the Baltimore and Ohio as well as the Canadian National. Amtrak also used them once that entity was created by the Federal Government. The beauty of these units is that they can operate seamlessly as a single unit or in a lengthy train. Lionel's version of the model has a silver painted body, blue heat-stamped lettering, two axle Magnetraction, illuminated interior (with three bulbs), horn (D cell battery required; not included), Pullmor motor, and metal trucks and baseplate. It is tough to find a Post-War Lionel Budd car with a perfect silver body. This item is rarer than the 400 powered Budd car because many customers preferred having the motorized passenger car instead of the motorized baggage car.
