Could it perhaps be because the manager responsible for organising them would rather not do any work and leaves it to the last minute so as to be able to say nobody uses the specials and so there is no need to run them.

The reluctance to run late-night specials is probably related to the historical need to keep dozens of people on for a couple of extra hours to man signals and open level-crossing gates.
