After 02553/4 Vaishali and 05279/80 Purabiya, 02561/2 Swatantrata Senani and 02565/6 Bihar Sampark Kranti getting Standard Composition from February 2022.
Current LHB 3E with GR fare is good, IMO. But, at current fare structure it holds no merit.
Possible hai but, kya railways karna chahega?
IR won't provide GR fares to LHB 3E. Fares would only go down if they are able to fit more people in the coaches.
Public pressure banayegi to karna padega. MAS GR ko MAS Humsafar bana diya tha booking bhi start ho gayi thi. Public bhadak gayi to again GR banana pada..
Garib Rath ke coaches old ho gaye hain. New ICF coaches bann nahi rahe. 3E LHB aa chuka hai. mujhe to lag raha hai isi ko GR me use karenge
Kisi ne Chennai High Court mein PIL daal diya tha aur High Court ne GR ko Humsafar mein convert karne ko unethical bata kar ruling diya. Isliye woh decision rollback ho gaya tha.
Mujhe bhi yehi laga tha ki 3E ko GR mein bhi denge. Dekhiye kya hota hai.

Was running between Jaynagar & Narkatiaganj daily.
Another a train 5531/5532 JYG NKE Exp also running that time.
I have Travelled many a times in gandak. :D nostalgic
Btw it was not fully unreserved,, when it was closed it used to have one sleeper class coach and tte used to come so I think it was reserved class. Cannot remember more then this. However we may keep the class as seen here.
