There’s some information and links on the WDM-2 here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WDM-2
There’s a lot of good information at the Indian Railways Fan Club site:

In the Table of Contents, go to Locomotives, then Notes on selected classes. You’ll find data and photos there.
If you can find copies of Jane’s World Railways (major libraries may have these), that come out annualy since the late 1940s, you’ll find technical details there for locomotives around the world.
