A weird situation.
EMDs aren't allowed in the Pamban Bridge.But,how's WDG-3A allowed?I just went through the mass of locos in a detailed chart available at IRFCA,the mass of WDG-3As is 123 tons,whereas the mass of WDP-4 is 119 tons and WDP-4B is 121.2 tons!Also checked whether WDG-3As haul only short rakes in the section,instead it actually is a link of the full 23 coacher Sethu Express and many other trains that is from the Rameswaram Island!
Is there any reason behind this?People who know this please put light on this :)
