Budd closed in the mid 1980s. If I remember correctly, the LIRR/MNRR M3/As were the last cars produced by the budd company.
They were bought by Thyssen-Krupp.

yup you're right.

Budd also built cars for Baltimore, and cars for Amtrak, The Metroliners. We also built our Silverliner II and III cars, which are soon to retire once the last of our Silverliner Vs come in

Don't forget Atlanta too. Also Budd built some of our first stainless steal commuter rail cars for METRA.

Budd closed here a long time ago. In like the late 70s. They made the Almond Joy M3's on the Market Frankford Line before getting moved to Germany i believe. The B-IVs were made by Kawasaki, and they've been upgraded over time because they never used to squeal like that until 2009-2010
You know I was watching some video of the B-4's the other day and noticed that too. Like CTA they have before some turns and especially the tight ones the inner greasing rail to sort of minimize the squeals. It doesn't seem to help those b-4's.
