Ok
There is a a present Cuttack-Paradeep line which is already operational.... is this new track Haridaspur-Paradeep line connects to that route at any point or is it completely a separate line?

A weird situation.
EMDs aren't allowed in the Pamban Bridge.But,how's WDG-3A allowed?I just went through the mass of locos in a detailed chart available at IRFCA,the mass of WDG-3As is 123 tons,whereas the mass of WDP-4 is 119 tons and WDP-4B is 121.2 tons!Also checked whether WDG-3As haul only short rakes in the section,instead it actually is a link of the full 23 coacher Sethu Express and many other trains that is from the Rameswaram Island!
Is there any reason behind this?People who know this please put light on this :)
Thanks
...
more...
in advance.
Edit:Even though T.E. is a concern,the T.E. of WDG-3A is actually more than all the WDP-4 class locomotives.The T.E. of WDG-3A is 40 ton which is 39600 kg,and the WDP-4B/4D has 39180 kg T.E.
The height of WDG-3A according to an IR document which I got is 4326 mm and the WDP-4/4B are 4264 mm and WDP-4D at 4211.6 mm.

High Tractive Effort of EMDs is the reason.

I believe the EMDs do not meet the required clearance (height, width etc) for the Scherzer lifting span. For that reason, they may not be allowed onto the bridge.
Let me find out more about this.

It seems like Width has been the issue,WDG-3A has 3016 mm width,WDP-4D has 3062 mm width.But it is just 6 cm extra sir,is that 6 cm the deciding factor?
