HWH-DGHA Tamralipto Exp RSA is planned to be LHBfied in February 2022. 1 rake of LHB coaches will reach in January 2022 without spare.
After its lhbfication its existing ICF Chair Car coaches will be distributed among HWH-PRR Rupasi Bangla Exp, HWH-RNC-PRR Exp RSA and HWH-BJE Aranyak Exp replacing some of their existing GS coaches and 3AC coaches.
Hope this resuffling will help in getting GS coaches for KGP-HTE Exp restart in February 2022.

Yes it is really very sad that due to shortage of coaches many important SER trains cannot be restored till date. But there is a plan to restore some trains as coaches available:
1. After LHBfication of HWH-ADI Exp, SHM-HYB East coast exp and SHM-PNBE Duronto Exp ts coaches will be used to restore:
B. Frequency increase of HWH-JDB Samleswari
SRC-MAQ Vivek Exp with SHM-BHUJ Exp only not other RSA partners

2. After LHBfication of HWH-DGHA Exp its coaches will be used to restore
B. Replace some coaches in HWH-PRR Rupasi Bangla, SHM-BJE Aranyak, HWH-PRR-RNC ICE
C. HWH-ADRA Rani Shiromoni Exp (If CBC Coaches r not available till date from KGPW)

3. After LHBfication of TATA-ERS Exp its coaches will be used to run
A. TATA-JAT Exp Weekly/Bi-Weekly

4. SRC-MAS Antodaya Approved to restart by RB but possibility of this train can be converted to Gati Shakti full AC 3T Economy train.

Note:I don't have any official documents on these plans. But these phasewise restorations will happen. RB not at all allocating enough SLEEPER coaches to SER. If some ICF coaches available soon some trains will be restored earlier

What does it mean to run ICF CBC? Should run with normal ICF rake until it is found.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake.
