******* The Only Diesel Locomotive Of IR which can be used for both Passenger and Freight Trains*******
Brief Description about the WDM Class Locomotive:
The class WDM-3A is Indian Railways' workhorse diesel locomotive. Since 1994, it has been manufactured in India by the Diesel Locomotive Works (DLW), Varanasi. The model name stands for broad gauge (W), diesel (D), mixed traffic (M) engine. The WDM-3A is the most common diesel locomotive of Indian Railways. The WDM-3A is a variant of the original WDM-2C. These units have been retro-fitted with dual brakes, in addition to
the air and vacuum brakes. The WDM 2 locos have a maximum speed of 120 km/h (75 mph). The gear ratio is 65:18.
The loco is now widely used across India for long distance passenger trains due to its ruggedness and high tractive loads and acceleration.
The term "Mixed Traffic" means you can use this Locomotive for both Passenger and freight trains.
For more details about Technical Specifications of WDM 3A interested viewers are requested to view:

Mention must be made here that the "New Variant" of WDM 3A is WDM 3D which is also as powerful as WDM 3A and WDM 3D is "Microprocessor Fitted Loco" which is absent in "WDM 3A" class locos.

As a current traveller on the shatabdi...blasting its way towards Solapur I feel that a lhb with better service is much needed. With the increase in fare it becomes a natural expectation for the traveler. Looking back on the train history I feel it has come a long way from being always late to ill quality food and as it has always been an old rake. It's a shame that food is still arranged near the entrance sink or toilets. Comparing it to other shatabdis I strongly feel it should get a new rake. The occupancy is good as well and it runs full on weekends.

I've noticed one thing over the past few months 12702 is always let go after 12026... so it is being honored as a shatabdi... that translates to at least fifteen minutes delay for 12702

I had an opportunity yesterday to travel by this train from SC to PUNE on a hush hush last minute trip with my mother. I understood that an AC express on this route would share the Duronto rake of SC LTT. Hence the coach condition and upkeep was up to the mark. I was booked in AC 2 tier so as to have a comfortable journey with my senior citizen mother. Looking at the chart the train was half empty in 3AC and almost empty in 2AC/1AC. There were hardly any booking for the 3 2AC berths. Which was a blessing as we could have full privacy and comfort. However, as specials have a long history of being late I was apprehensive if this train will be run on time. Even though it has a good amount of slack time added (Makes sense as trailing the duronto TT will cause operational...
issues and may cause delays to this train) the train was bang on time on all stations viz. WADI, SUR, DD, and PUNE. This is a welcome by the SCR/CR controllers where an AC train is being run on TT. Guess others can give a try if timings do not affect your Monday mornings/evenings.

This Spl earlier used run with Duronto TT Slot both sides with minor changes and was doing fantastically well,both in terms of Patronage & Punctuality..But for no reasons this has made a Slow train and off-course has enough slack to make it on-time/before time at many stations.
This mentioned Spl was running as such before budget and was extended continuously so thought could well be regularized but didn't.

A daily SF (with duronto treatment) matching the duronto TT with the Tech halts as regular halts will be Super hit in his sector. The shatabdi then can be withdrawn or re-aligned to other sectors.
