MFAX 1242, front view
Title:  MFAX 1242, front view
Description:  The closest I could come to a frontal view without actually setting foot on RR property. This unit has a set of six hoses plus an MU receptacle above the coupler. One thing for sure, they didn't need that tarp for the radiator on this very warm Sunday--it was over 90 degrees when I got these photos! Higginsville, MO: 5-27-2012.

MFAX 1242, rear view
Title:  MFAX 1242, rear view
Description:  This was as close as I dared when it came to attempting a photo of the cab rear. There is a vertical handrail on only one side of the cab but both sides of the door have a handrail leading to the step. Also, notice the cut or uncoupling levers-I've never seen a set in that shape before. Higginsville, MO: 5-27-2012.
