It is not a misconception.
After the rail link to Pathankot was opened in the 1950's, this train used to go to Pathankot via Amritsar. The service was curtailed to Amritsar a few years later, but in CR territory it was called the Pathankot express for a very long time. This was not just an unofficial name or a common name, but many railway documents and accident reports also called it the "Pathankot express".
Between 'Pathankot' and 'Dadar' express, Pathankot was at least official for a long time, while Dadar was
not an official name in the timetables, but mostly used in the Northern areas and in station announcements.
Dadar can be added to the name if it being used in announcements, but 'Pathankot' should remain a part of the name, in my opinion.

Looks like RDSO is into R&D of or for development of dual mode locomotives that can run on both electric and diesel traction. These will be christened as WDAP4s, which will be achieved by converting EMD locos into dual mode ones.
per the accompanying video, the electric traction motors of 5000 HP will be added to the existing 4500 HP diesel motors and there will be a single panto for the electrified sectors.
This is the video giving a broad idea of the development phase of the WDAP4 locos, which are a good answer to both new imported HHP EMDs as well as those being made for freight operations by Alstom at Marhawra, Bihar.
Here is a write-up or overview on dual traction locos:
The Indian railways have undertaken an ambitious plan of electrifying the entire railway network in the country. In the interim, mixed routes of traction are inevitable and will continue to exist. Electric locomotives can work only with overhead catenary supply, whereas diesel locomotives have the flexibility to operate anywhere on the Indian railways network.
Dual-mode (diesel + electric) locomotives can work with diesel engine as the primary power source while operating in non-electrified routes and work as an electric locomotive by drawing power from overhead catenaries in electrified sections.
The RDSO has drawn up plans to convert the EMD WDP4D locomotives to dual fuel mode that will run on both diesel as well as AC electric traction. And unlike the converted WAGC3, the WDAP4 (wag11)will be a true dual-mode locomotive. The proposed WDAP4 locomotive is being designed to haul 26 air conditioned cars at a top speed of 135 Kmph.

Re# 4081757-6            Tags   Past Edits
A few corrections.
WAG11 and WDAP4 are completely different locomotives.
WAG11 is a WDG4 locomotive that is being converted to an electric loco. It is a purely electric locomotive and will be a twin-unit locomotive like the WAGC3. Both WAGC3 and WAG11 are the same concept, one converting an ALCO and the other converting an EMD.
The WDAP4 is just a proposed concept,
that is not yet in production. RDSO is still working in the design process and once that is finalized, one of the existing EMD's due for a POH or MOH will be taken up for conversion.
WAG11 and WDAP4 are NOT the same.
Secondly, the loco will only be a 5000HP loco in e-loco mode and 4500HP in diesel mode. No additional traction motors will be added to the loco. The same 6 traction motors will be used both in diesel mode and electric mode.

Initially there were talks about the NED train being diverted, but there were some protests from Sedam and other towns and it was scrapped even before it was made an official proposal. Probably the Bidar trains too faced some similar pressure.
Secondly, in the initial days after opening the line, CR cited some PF issues at GR for handling trains on the GR-BIDR route. If I am not wrong, the BIDR line is connected only to PF1 at Gulbarga. This could be a problem for them.

Re# 4069166-34            Tags   Past Edits
BIDR-GR definitely needs long distance trains, as it is a reasonably long branch line and also provides connectivity options that weren't possible before.
Until the Raichur-Ginigera line is completed, RC-Gadwal line will be better served by frequent DEMU/passenger services. It is just a 50km branch line and end-to-end travel will hardly take 1 hour, with the routes at both ends also connecting to Hyderabad and Guntakal. In such a scenario, instead of trying for a new long distance train just for this 50km section, since both ends of the section are already on major long distance routes, frequent end-to-end passenger services will let people catch long distance trains at Raichur or Gadwal.
