  • Description

    A revolutionary new railway coach has been launched in the United States.

    SYNOPSIS: The new rail-coach is special because it is designed to meet the transport needs of both the developing countries as well as those with more advanced rail networks. It is called the Budd International Rail Car. The exterior is made of stainless steel, which is strong and resistant to corrosion. The design, which is considered by experts to be something of a breakthrough in passenger coaches, not only incorporates the most advanced railroad technology, but is also economical.

    The most unique feature is that the coach is pre-fabricated and is designed to be assembled easily anywhere with a minimum of tools.

    All that is needed are small hand tools, and a special tool kit for the assembly is supplied with each coach. The basic components can be packed in crates for easy shipment.

    Assembly is so simple that it can be done by local labour, who just need to bolt the frame together.

    The coach can comfortably seat one hundred and nine passengers -- and standing up to three hundred can be safely accommodated. Passenger preferences and habits differ from country to country, so the interior can be adapted for any service, using components manufactured in the country which buys the coach.

    The manufacturers are calling this new stainless-steel coach the ultimate solution for world "people moving" problems.
