Do you think passenger/express trains between Mumbai and Pune/Daund should get WAP/WAG locos instead of WCAM locomotive

Sir according to me WCAM should be used as bankers and when WAG/WAP is not available then as Offlink. But if they are used a regular link in few trains that is OK. So I have opted maybe.

Sir I suggested for the future. I travelled by Tapovan Exp. From CSTM to Manmad as you mentioned WCAM was the link. :)

Not necessary. There is no performance difference. WCAM3 locomotives are very well suited to the ghat route and there are crews and Loco sheds/trip sheds that are very well trained in handling these locomotives. And all trains originating towards Pune/Daund get a LC or LR anyways at these stations and using a WCAM instead of a WAP/WAG won't make any difference in the operation time. So, let the WCAM's rule the ghat sections for the duration of their codal life. No need to relegate locomotives in perfect working condition to minor duties.
