|The WDM3D was a more pathbreaking kind of locomotive for the Indian Railways, the “real next generation” after the WDM3A. It was again based on the ALCO, powered by the old faithful ALCO 251 engine. These were the result of IR getting it right how to rebuild the engine to produce 3300 hp (result of the WDM3C experiments) and at the same time being able to integrate into this high powered ALCO the best features of the EMD locomotives like microprocessor control, larger fuel tanks and oil sump, possible fiberglass cabin and improved control stands. Later models also have the DBRs fitted on the short hood roof, giving them the “hoodie” look. Comparing with the WDM3A, the WDM3D can carry 1.5 tonne more axle load (19.5t) and generates 38.5t Maximum Tractive Effort compared to the 30.5t of the WDM3A.|
