MKT RS3M 142
Title:  MKT RS3M 142
Description:  MKT RS3M 142 at Kansas City, Missouri on an unknown day in April 1980, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in June 1951 as MKT RS3 1701 (c/n 78892) it was repowered by EMD during October 1959 with a 16-567C prime mover, which required an EMD long hood to clear the diesel block. The electrical equipment remained GE, so the locomotive was rated at 1500 horsepower. This is the rear of the unit.

MKT RS-3M 142 Long Hood Wedge Shot
Title:  MKT RS-3M 142 Long Hood Wedge Shot
Description:  You can see that this locomotive has the Long Hood Side mark as the front with the F. I have heard that the reason why the long nose is considered the front side on many of these units is becasue most steam engines have the cabs in the rear.
