Spotting for first time ERODE WDG-4 pair with BTPN consist



I imagine how "convenient" the pilot train is to drive the diesel locomotive with a diesel engine forward. The visibility is probably gorgeous ...
Almost like operating a big long steam engine 🚂
@white.dead @Maersk.146 Usually in a pair , the shed will make sure that the short hood is in lead but sometimes long horn comes in lead because in India, all the turntables have been removed. This section which this freight train is passing is a difficult terrain with sharp curves. So it is difficult for the engineers when loco is going forward in long hood
@jmadhavadas
It seems to me that WDG4D and WDP4D is a more successful model in this respect. He has 2 cabins ... For the main diesel locomotive that is necessary)
@white.dead You are right. That is why IR stopped the production of WDP-4, WDP-4B, WDG-4 and went for dual cab
