The situation in the 1970s was complicated. Steam was fading away, being replaced by diesel. The railway system needed new locomotives. The expected 735 series was delayed, the 740 for industrial use was too heavy. The requirement for mid-heavy engines became so strong, that ČKD machinery moved on with some quick adjustments and modifications on the 740. The 742 was born.

The power output of 883 kW and a maximum speed of 90 kph predetermined this locomotive mostly for freight or shunting service.
You can identify the locomotive by its long „nose“, the sound of a fast-running diesel engine and the cabin with only a side view option. Fun fact - the engineer has to move from one side of the cabin to the other – he wouldn’t be able to see to left curves otherwise.

Over 450 locomotives were built until 1986. The machine, who nobody counted with and which should have been made only in small numbers. In the end, the 742 was the most frequent loco you could see at every railway station. And maybe even in Bangladesh, which provided the nickname (abbr. „Bangle“) and where the locomotive was intended for export.
