Randy-O explained the two car type differences quite adequately. I well remember standing at the storm door window on the enclosed MUDC vestibule platform, and seeing behind me to my right, the M/M thru his inner cab window operating the train.
The Q types I recalled being different from the MUDC's, as I stood by the storm door window. The M/M and his cab door was now to my right with the M/M inside his relocated cab on the now enclosed end front vestibule platform
Here are two photos below to visually show you the difference.
