The RDC-9 had no operating controls but had a 300 hp motor.
I believe only B&M had the RDC-9

Some operators "single ended" the cars latter in life to match operating requirements.    For instance after a wreck the one SP car was single ended in a one of the kind fashion.   Rapido did that car in HO.

Many of those B&M RDC-9's were sold to CN.

I should have indicated the B&M was the original purchaser/owner/operator.

Yes is the answer, except for the one of a kind RDC9 and rebuilds. But to answer your question, yes they had dual controls.
