The following are magazine advertisements for the Budd Company. Most appeared
in National Geographic in the 1950s (dates are listed beside the image link, if
known). While none of these ads pertain directly to Cape Cod railroading, they are still enjoyable pieces of railroad history (and of course the New Haven used Budd RDCs frequently on the Cape in the '50s).
The Budd Company manufactured quite a variety of products, including:
Bodies and wheels for Automobiles, Trucks and Highway Trailers; Railway
Passenger Cars and Disc Brakes; Agricultural Implements; Laminated Plastics,
Vulcanized Fibre and Insulating Materials; Nuclear Energy Radiography Units;
Jet Engine Components.
Rail Diesel Car ("RDC" or "Budd Car") advertisements:
