WDM3D is good for speed and hauling 24 coaches. Before electrification in VM-MDU sector 3D's only used for Kanyakumari, Muthunagar, Pandian, Nellai and Podhigai. After MDU no train goes in high speed, they passing only in normal speed. My question is were and when this photo is taken? becuase this photo shows tracks in no-pole area. Currently no pole area in south tamilnadu is available in VM-MV-TPJ route, TPJ-RMM route, MDU-RMM route, VPT-SCT route. Guruvayur won't use any of this route!!!

No bro , earlier MS-MDU Kudal nagar express and MDU -GUV express were running , later on MDU_GUV strtch was merged wtih Kudal nagar, so that TVC and interior TN are connected well. None will travel E2E in this train. mostly passengers who prefer this train will travel MS-MDU/TEN, MDU-NCJ/TVC, TVC/NCJ-GUV

Yup. First it was MS-ED express via KRR , then MS-CBE express , later on TPJ-MAQ express was merged. forming MS-MAQ. This acts as an ONT between MS-TPJ/KRR , then ICE between TPJ-CBE/PGT and CBE-MAQ .

Arriving at Tambaram, and meeting ED WDM-3D Pearl City (Muthu Nagar) SF: Guruvayur Express (Jan 2013)
.
.
22730 WAP- 4 of ED (Erode) shed hauled 16127 Chennai Egmore (MS)- Guruvayur (GUV)/ Tuticorin (TN) Express slows down on its approach to Tambaram (TBM) station, which is one of the most important suburban station of Chennai. As we cruise through the points, the massive Tambaram EMU Car Shed could be spotted. Further as we approach the station, we meet the late running 11109 ED (Erode) WDM- 3D hauled 12694 Tuticorin (TN)- Chennai Egmore (MS) PEARL CITY (MUTHU NAGAR) Superfast Express before getting overtaken by an EMU. Finally we brake to give the first scheduled halt of the journey.

PEARL CITY (MUTHU NAGAR) Superfast Express follows the Tuticorin- Vanchi Maniyachchi- Virudunagar- Madurai- Dindigul- Tiruchchirappalli- Vriddhachalam- Villupuram- Chengalpattu- Tambaram- Chennai Egmore route. Now the train no more gets a ED WDM- 3D for its entire journey. The Madurai- Chennai Egmore section is now handled by an ED/ RPM WAP- 4.
Tambaram railway station::
Tambaram Railway Station is one of the railway termini of the Chennai Beach--Tambaram section of the Chennai Suburban Railway Network. It is situated at a distance of 6 km from the centre of Tambaram, a suburb of Chennai located 27 km south of the city centre. It is one of the fastest growing railway hubs outside Chennai Central in the southern direction.
Tambaram Railway Station divides Tambaram into East Tambaram and West Tambaram. There are nine platforms in the station. Platforms 3 and 4 are not used as the metre gauge lines are yet to be taken up for conversion, whereas those between 5 and 9 are used by the suburban electric trains between Chennai Beach and Chengalpattu and Tirumalpur and also long distance express trains. Most of the suburban electric train services originating from Tambaram to Beach and Chengalpattu leave from the first two platforms. There is a foot overbridge connecting East and West Tambaram with access to all platforms. In 2008, Southern Railway started building an additional platform at the westernmost side of the railway station, making Platform No.1 a double-discharge platform, a design which helps commuters to alight on either side of the train, similar to the one at Park Railway Station, where the passengers could alight on the western side for quicker access to Chennai Central.
The lines at the station were one of the first in Chennai to be electrified. They were energised on 1.5 kV DC in 1931 with the electrification of the Chennai Beach--Tambaram section, and the third line in the section was electrified on 15 January 1965. The lines further south from the station, up to Chengalpattu, were electrified on 9 January 1965. On 15 January 1967, all the lines were converted to 25 kV AC.
The station had a huge metre-gauge freight marshalling yard for Chennai, which has been closed.It is also a former electric shed and home to the YAM-1 locomotives. Presently, the station has a broad-gauge EMU maintenance and car shed. The EMU car shed was established in 1931 and has adequate facilities to maintain 12-coach rakes.

Times have changed... EMUs towards Chengalpattu and Tirumalpur use Platforms 6 to 9. Trains originating from Tambaram and trains from Chengalpattu and Tirumalpur to Chennai Beach use Platforms 1 and 2. Express trains use Platforms 8 and 9. And all the platforms were converted to Broad Guage several years back. Tambaram is expected to be the third terminal of Chennai. It facilitates the movement of trains towards southern , Eastern parts of Tamil Nadu and also to Kerala state. Construction works for the pit line and a coach care center are going on at TBM...

Thank you so much for updating me.. Its true that MS is too small to handle the ver growing number of trains, and Tambaram needs to be facilitated as a new Terminal..
