Has anyone seen a WDM3 (not a subclass of WDM3)?

Only the veteran rail fans could have seen them in action. Most of them were decommissioned by the early 90's. The RRM in Chennai used to have some pictures of it, apparently (They were used to haul the Brindavan express for a while), but they were not present when I visited the RRM last year.

I have only seen one black and white photograph of them. But, sadly never saw them even in yards. There are no videos of them online... Does anyone have a video of WDM3 loco?

There are some publications that have the pictures, but they are not available for free.
International Railway journal, 1971-72
Jane's world railways, 1971-72
RDSO REPORT,1971
All these publications have some pictures of the locomotive,
...
more...
but due to copyright issues the images are not available online. You can read some portions on Google books though.
These locos operated mostly on the GTL-AJJ, MAS-JTJ and the branches around GTL, not really a rail fanning hotspot. In addition, only 8 of these locos were imported, so they were exceptionally rare.
I remember, Mani Vijay sir or someone else mentioned them in one of their trip reports on IRFCA. They may be having pics or videos of these locos.

Finally! Thanks to Mani Vijay sir, here is a capture of the WDM3 in it's original livery (I think red with a yellow band) at Gooty shed. Just found this in a video he posted on his youtube channel 3 months ago. You can pause the video at the 16:50 mark when his train is leaving Gooty station after an unscheduled halt. You can actually see two WDM3 locos. One is quite clear in the frame while a second one is partly hidden in the shadows behind the first one.
Credits: Mani Vijay Sir. ( Youtube link attached)

Only if IR focuses on upgrading tracks instead of building Mumbai Ahmadabad HSR dedicated corridor. The HSR dedicated corridor will not help existing trains in IR instead upgraded HSR corridor is needed. Existing train speeds must be increased drasticly. 55km/h avg speed trains should be sped up to at least 80km/h average and 75km/h+ avg speed trains should be sped up to avg over 100km/h.

I know yes, but Tibet and India can sign an agreement to allow international rail route to be built. And I know this fact already because I know there are Buddhist monasteries there and one of my friends who went on Kailash yatra told me.

What if Tibet becomes part of India as an union territory with autonomous powers? Then there will be a broad gauge rail line to Lhasa.

This has nothing to do with the loco. I meant it departed SBC with GOC loco that is after reaching SBC BT. Till SBC it is hauled by KJM EMD. This train comes late due to numerous crossings between DMM-YNK. Even 10 locos pulling this train will not make it come early :P
