It does get twins as it carries the link for the slip part to Shivamogga. Not always but I have seen it with twins quite often in last 1 year.

Twins cant get decoupled and run as split Loco for split rake for slip & regular rake (until they arnt coupled and run as different unit)!! Its easy to attach/detach one Rake with other (as in Freight Python Rake), without disturbing loco (to minimize hassle & time)!!
To decouple Locos (and to recouple when slip gets attached), is a complicated process (carried out at Loco Shed) & usually Twins remain stable for long period and attached to train, as per availability!!

Video compilation of onboard journey from Mavli to Marwar behind PHULERA YDM-4 6655. The video covers the Mavli-Nathdwara MG-BG section, crossing at Charbhuja. Khambli and Goramghat arrival, reversal at Phulad and arriving in Marwar Junction with a Double Stack Container on BG tracks.
The section from Mavli Jn to Marwar Jn (151 Kilometres) comes under
Ajmer division of Northwestern Railways.
This is the only meter gauge section functional in Rajasthan, a state which had an extensive meter gauge network once upon a time.

One particular day when we were living in the year 2020 P.C.E (Pre Covid Era); I got info from my friend Natarajan that the newly painted ED WAP-7 sporting 'Porna Chicken' Livery was coming with the Uday Express from Coimbatore. We took the Bangarpet MEMU and luckily manged to capture it at Tyakal. While returning back, we alighted at Baiyyappanahalli to spot it returning with the 22626 Chennai Double Decker. In a single day we spotted with both AC Double Decker Trains of Bengaluru.
KSR Bengaluru was at one time the only station to have 2 AC Double Decker trains departing Back to Back. Then Uday Exp got augmented with 2S coaches.
