      Our Budd Car, The Millie, is a Rail Diesel Car, which is a self-propelled diesel-hydraulic rail passenger car. In the 1949-1962 era, 398 RDCs were built by the Budd Company of Philadelphia, PA. These cars were primarily adopted for passenger service in rural areas with low traffic density or in short-haul commuter service, and were less expensive to operate. The cars can be used singly or several coupled together in train sets and controlled from the cab of a front unit. Conway Scenic Railroad purchased the RDC-1, built for the New Haven Railroad in 1954, from the New York Susquehanna & Western Railway. It was known as the 23 and as is the tradition at Conway Scenic Railroad the unit will revert to its original number and becomes the CSRR23. The unit is in service on extra trips to Conway at peak times during summer, as an extra coach on the Notch train during Fall Foliage, and on either end of our regular operating season. Private excursions on this car are welcomed and the RDC-1 has a seating capacity of 88 passengers. The 21 mile roundtrip Bartlett excursion departs North Conway. Sit back and enjoy the passing scenery & surrounding mountains, as it travels northwest through fields and woodlands, crossing the East Branch, Saco and Ellis River enroute to Bartlett, then returns to North Conway. See the website to make reservations online.

      Cost: $26; $18 children
