Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sleeper trains are unloved by managements for some reason. I never looked at their economics, but if it is problematic then not for lack of demand: all the sleeper trains I took so far (and all of them to or from France) were chock-full and some booked up in advance for weeks, meaning that there would be room for running more trains. Maybe it's a similar case to the demise of Germany's popular InterRegio, or the elimination of most conventional expresses on the Wuhan-Guangzhou line: an idiotic attempt to redirect passengers to more expensive services (and then wondering why those passengers choose buses instead).
