In 1970s, The Indian Railways was looking for an extraordinary locomotive those can operate their special passenger trains at higher speeds and the WDPs were born at DLW, Varanasi. These locomotives were based on the original ALCOs design and technology (diesel-electric) but with a combination of specialized gear ratio that gave wings to these locomotives and capability to run on fastest speed of that time. WDP 2A is the 2nd generation 3000HP mainline diesel locomotive with a maximum speed limit of 140kmph.
