Availability of EMDs with WR is one of the main reason for running this alco.............Moreover it have limited stoppage, it doesnt need frequent accelerations and decelerations unlike the other trains on this route that an EMD should be strictly assigned to it.

Wdm-3D is doing very good with this train from many years so WR is not ready to change loco.

It is technically possible to have a single locomotive with duel power technology for a seamless operation of train. It is like a Diesel locomotive with a pantograph and in electrified route it should draw power from overhead traction line and in non-electrified route it runs like a normal diesel locomotive.
Similar locomotives are manufactured by Bombardier (ALP-45DP) and are in use in USA and Canada and also by Talgo (Alvia S730) used by Renfe for hi-speed lines in Spain. It saves time in changing locos as well as cost of inventory.....When will we have such rolling-stocks....!!!!!
