Why is this ALCO fitted with an aerodynamic cab ? Was it used for some speed trials or any special purpose ?

It was a one-off experiment to improve ALCOs in the same style as EMDs. The WDM3D locos used a lot of features from the WDP4 series locos like microprocessor control, electronic fuel injection etc. This loco and some others from GOC/EMD with the slightly pointy shaped front cab, were experiments to emulate the EMD style cab.
Also, having a 'V' shape at the front doesn't really correlate with higher speeds.
Until about 140-160kmph, the shape of the loco doesn't really matter unless it's

a short rake.
The aerodynamic performance of a train depends on 2 things - the shape of the loco and coaches (streamlined front face, how wide and tall the loco and coaches are etc) and the length of the train.
For most Indian trains, the drag due to the length of the train is much higher than the drag due to the shape of the loco. So, streamlining or not streamlining the loco face doesn't really make a big difference for IR's trains.

Great capture!
Just for reference though, this train is not the Imperial mail. The Imperial mail was a separate special train that was cancelled during the 2nd world war.

=> Bandel, categorised as a NSG 3 station, registered a footfall of 0.99cr (1cr footfall was needed for being a NSG 2 station)
=> Howrah is the 2nd highest-earning station of India after New Delhi

Depends from zone to zone like NFR has classified from 17-18 earning while SER has classified from 16-17 earnings
ER has classifed it's stations based on 16-17 earning AFAIK

Re# 3716478-7            Tags   Past Edits
Yes definately it's unfair.
For example, some stations of NFR has suffered a lot in 2017-18 due to floods in north bihar and north bengal in 2017 which consequently lead to breaking of some bridge near Barsoi and hence disconnected north east india with rest of india. So the revenue of stations like NJP, GHY, KNE, BOE, NCB, APDJ, NBQ, etc also got reduced in 2017-18
Similar thing happend with stations like Dhanbad, Gomoh, Bokaro, Chandrapura, etc due to the closure of DC line. So a difference of just 1 year makes

a great difference for these stations
