大峽谷鐵道 Grand Conyon Railway COACH CLASS CARS

大峽谷鐵道 Grand Conyon Railway的Budd所製造的COACH CLASS CARS在原Boston & Maine Railway時稱為Highliners。全部一開始就搭配柴油發電,代表每台車都有自己的電源,每台車依據使用可以結合及分離。到了1983年改成無電力車廂,並使用在Metropolitan Boston的運輸上,接著在Virginia Rail Express在Washington DC作為通勤使用。目前大峽谷鐵道 Grand Conyon Railway有12輛Budd Coach其窗戶為密閉式,不像Pullman車廂可以將窗戶打開,全車為空調車。車長85呎,每輛車有94座位。
All of GCR’s Budd coaches started out with the Boston & Maine Railway and were called “Highliners” All began as Rail Diesel Cars, which means that each car had its own power and train’s of RDCs could be split and combined at will instead of using a locomotive. They were all converted to their current non-powered coach configuration by 1983 and used in the Metropolitan Boston Transit Authority then the Virginia Rail Express for commuter service out of Washington DC. GCR currently has 12 of these Budd Coaches in service. Unlike the Pullman Coaches which have windows that open, the Budd class coaches have sealed windows, are climate-controlled, are 85 feet long, and carry 94 passengers.
