WAGC3 is a pure electric locomotive only.
My response was to the question in /blog/post/3161480 There he was asking about dual-mode locomotives.

Yes, but so far I know it will be dual cab by stichting two locos together, a single loco is not dual cab. To the best of my knowledge WAG12 also follows the same pattern- Two 6000HP locos are stitched together to make a 12000HP unit.

I think a wdg4 loco converted to a wag loco would be better since the cab will provide a good view.

Yeah, or to be precise a WDG4D or WDG4D. Then it will automatically get dual cabs.
