BUDD ON THE ROAD - 2003
The P&C's Budd car has been running on many different railroads.  It's easy to bring along since it's a
single car and battery powered, especially now that it has a "Budd Tote."   Here is a sampler of where it's
been this year.
The RDC is high atop the Weatherby Trestle in Fallston, Maryland, on
4/13/03.
Picking up passengers at the Keystone and Diamond RR in Wilmington, Delaware,
4/14/03.
At the end of the line on the West Berlin Garden Railroad, Berlin, New Jersey,
6/8/03.
Picking up passengers on the Marshallton Central Railroad, in Marshallton,
PA, (near West Chester), 9/22/03.  The car was unable to negotiate some
of the curves here because of its length, so the best we could do was run a
shuttle.

Cruising along the line at Cliff's garden railroad in Chesapeake City, Maryland,
9/8/03.
The RDC and two other trains running in the grass under the shade of a huge
oak tree at the Mason-Dixon Large Scale Club's display at the Aberdeen
Heritage Festival. It looks empty here, but there were a number of kids just to
the right of this scene, waiting to fill the gondola with acorns as it passed.
Aberdeen, Maryland, 9/20/03.
The Budd Car scoots beneath an RS3 running on brand-new elevated trackage at the Dal
Valley Railroad in Doylestown, PA, 11/10/03.  This is the RDC's fourth visit to this railroad
and certainly the chilliest.  Steve, Tom, and Mike will soon be bringing trains into the warm
house.
On a gorgeous summer evening, the RDC ducks into a tunnel while an SD45 pulls
a train on the near track,  at Ken's garden railroad in Rising Sun, Maryland,
7/30/03.
It's now December 14 and the RDC gets a chance to run indoors.  Here it's making a stop
at the Bel Air Station on the Mason-Dixon Large Scale RR Society's modular layout.  The
layout is set up and running throughout the Christmas season in a previously vacant store in
Bel Air Maryland.
