Budd Silver Princess of 1947
Posted by steveiow on Friday, July 8, 2011 5:45 PM

During 1947,Budd shipped this car over to the UK.

It was built to our loading gauge and also ran for a time on Irish rails.

From what little info I have,it seems to have stayed in the UK possibly until it was scrapped.There were no repeat orders-this country was *** near bankrupt in 1947,so it remained a one off.

Anyone ever heard of it?

Thanks

Steve
