Reason stated by SWR for cancellation of LHB conversion.🤦🤦
Total nonsense if migrant workers was the reason then they could have given this train the CC they will give to UBL BSB express with 6 SL coaches.
The most obvious reason is this train's rake will either be given to VSG VLNK express whose bookings are suspended from January 2024 or UBL BSB express whose LHB CC bookings are opened on IRCTC from February 2024.
decision by SWR to cancel LHB conversion of this train.

So can we expect LHB for VSG VLNK next year? If so will the CC be standardized one (as VSG CDO has similar CC for Goa SF and VSG JSME?)

Bookings were suspended of this train from 15 November SWR issued PR for LHB conversion than cancelled it at the last moment.
Similarly bookings were suspended of both VSG YPR express and VSG VLNK express from January 2024 but SWR have reopened bookings in VSG YPR express with old ICF CC so it's LHB conversion must have been internally planned but later on reverted back the decision now VSG VLNK still has some chances of LHB conversion but again it may too be cancelled if HQ decides to give it's LHB rake to some other train.
all VSG PNBE and VSG YPR were in SWR LHB conversion list of FY 2022-23 but still not LHBfied.
And again in FY 2023-24 VSG PNBE SF, VSG YPR express and VSG VLNK express are in LHB conversion list.
Regarding CC if at all VSG VLNK express gets LHB rake it's CC will be standardized too that's why they suspend the bookings.

    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. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
