P7 is allotted to those trains which has many stops, that's why passenger trains getting P7.
CMNR - TPTY pass, despite having many stops, never got P7
Lalbagh which was hauled by P4 from its starting days covered the distance in 5 hrs, as stops got increased, it is getting P7

But here CSTM MAS exp is running long distance loco change happens at GTL so why don't use P7 loco for this train??? Why do using P1,P4? Also MAS NSL exp is having 22coaches as my suggestion P7 is useful for CSTM MAS exp, MAS NSL MAS exp.

RPM WAP7s are having some heating issues, that's why most of the long distance trains from south are getting ED WAP4. Also just because the WAP7 is the latest locomotive doesn't make it much better than P4 or P1. Most trains in IR have slow schedules because of lack of signaling technologies and lack of platforms at stations. Almost all of the presently running trains can be managed equally well with the older locomotive's as well.
MAS GTL route does not have any trains with aggressive schedules or even fast schedules. So WAP7 is not currently necessary on this route. It can be made to run based on loco availability, but there is no urgent need to
spare P7 locos particularly for this route.
It definitely feels good to see new, fancy locos driving on our favourite routes, but that's not his things work. Locomotives are always alloted based on availability and train requirements. In the future when number of P7 locos increases, then you may stay seeing them more regularly in this route. IR is not mad, they are doing things with the proper technical protocols only.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
