Please change the category of this train to EMU instead of MEMU. EMU rakes operate on this route
They operate DMU Push Pull and MEMU there apparently because those tracks are not fit for EMU operation. EMU coaches are wider than DMU and MEMU ones and the gap between the two tracks is insufficient

Pure AC rake EMU..........
