CP Budd RDC in Tuscan Letterboards
Author: feclark

On Saturday I posted a shot of an RS-10 hauling a wounded RDC to Montreal, at https://www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php?15,5677916. What took its place next day? I was in place on Carleton University's campus in Ottawa, on May 26, 1978, when RDC-1 9065 showed up on schedule, at 0829. For the first time in my young railfan career, I saw a CP RDC in a Canadian Pacific scheme, rather than CP Rail. So I got yellow letters on tuscan letterboards, with the newer red-and-white end treatment (not the original yellow and tuscan diagonal stripes). It felt like a nice treat. I suspect a few of you will find the buses in the background of greater interest.

Love the old RDC's. They could be very useful for even new branch and simple corridor services today. Simple and no overthinking!
