My guess is it seems one rake is running with reverse composition....As there was another video on YouTube from few days back that shows correct order...And another from few days earlier that was showing reverse...
This video from yesterday again has the reversed ones.. so quite possible that one rake got reversed due to the incident few weeks back (as SK took alternate route) and that one is still running as is...

Travelled with this train yesterday and reached dadar today morning.
1. Todays rake was running with reverse CC as all AC coaches were in last when departed from EGMORE. When asked coach attendant that whether rakes have been reversed , they said only one rake is having this composition and this happened during Jalikattu bandh in Salem. The train took different route to reach Salem and inthe way rake got reversed. TTE said they are clueless how to rectify this now :-).
2. Train has ample slack time for the whole jouney.
...
more...
Inspite of reaching Guntakaal 1 hour late, reached Sholapur bang on time and Dadar 15 mins before time.
3. Electrification for whole jouney will take lot of time. No work going on beyond gulbarga upto sholapur.
4. few stretches beyond gulbarga, somewhere near to Dudhani...Train runs on single line...
5. Chennai-MUM sector desperately needs duronto type train.

Sep 08 2016 (18:46)   Why the Indian Railways’ dynamic pricing system is a step in the right direction
 

विश्व नाथ*^   3552 news posts
Entry# 1985081   News Entry# 279447         Tags   Past Edits
The government’s decision to introduce a dynamic pricing system on Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains is a step in the right direction.
The announcement – under which base fares will jump by 10% for every 10% berths sold in AC-II and AC-III compartments on these trains, with a cap of 50% hike on the original fare -- seeks to address the “fare versus freight” distortion of the Indian Railways.
The railways has suffered decades of low investment. Several previous railway ministers have refused to hike low fares to please the public. This, however,
...
more...
has resulted in a strain on the finances and has derailed freight growth.
On account of the “populist” moves, the finances in the sector have remained perennially caught up in a ’Catch-22’ situation of sorts -- with freight earnings continuing to be diverted to subsidise passenger fares.There were no fare hikes for almost 10 years during the previous UPA government’s rule. With Wednesday’s announcement, the current NDA government has hiked train fares twice.
Economists had welcomed railway minister Suresh Prabhu’s decision in 2015 to break with a populist tradition of announcing several new trains in the budget for politically sensitive regions.
Annual losses in the passenger segment -- or what is called the “social sector obligations” of the Indian Railways -- have, however, remained out of control. This year, the losses are estimated at Rs 30,000/- crore.
For every rupee earned by the railways, 66 paise come from freight and 28 paise from passenger tickets -- with the other earnings constituting six paise. Of this, the Indian Railways has been able to spare approximately just four paise annually for undertaking modernisation and infrastructure activities.
Because of flawed policies of the past, freight traffic has continuously been shifting to roads, ships and pipelines. “If the railways are to regain its lost primacy as the main carrier of goods traffic in the country, such steps are necessary,” said KL Thapar of the Asian Institute of Transport.
Passengers travelling in the Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto are generally considered to have a higher economic status. The decision to hike fares has evidently factored in this aspect.
The hike will not apply to the AC-I and executive class passengers. “This is to prevent passengers in this category from migrating to budget airlines or roads. The AC-I and EC fares are already comparable and sometimes higher than airline fares,” an official said.
Policy makers have refrained from hiking fares of the unreserved general class of passengers who constitute 95% of the total of 23 million people who travel on the 65,000km network of the Indian Railways.Fares in this category have remained ridiculously low. As earlier reported by the Hindustan Times, one can make a journey in the unreserved class from Delhi to Chandigarh at the price of 140mg tube of toothpaste. The Mumbai-Chennai distance in the same class can be covered at Rs 300, the price of a kilogram of ‘paneer’. The Lucknow-Kanpur journey is for Rs 20.
“Passengers travelling the unreserved classes constitute the economic activity of the nation. Their paying capacity being low, we have kept them insulated from the hike. Those who can pay more, should pay more. Those who cannot, should be subsidised,” explained another official.

Well there is some hope of this proposal being scrapped in future.
NEW DELHI: Facing criticism, the railways today said that the decision to introduce dynamic surge pricing for premier train tickets has been done on an experimental basis and it will be reviewed after some time.
The move to put in place the flexi fare system for premier trains -- Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatabdi -- from tomorrow has invited criticism from opposition parties.

travelling by Rajdhani, Duronto and Shatadbi trains will have to shell out between 10 and 50 per cent more under a dynamic surge pricing system to be introduced from September 9, aimed at raking in Rs 500 crore more during the current financial year.
"We have introduced the dynamic fare system on an experimental basis. We will review it after some time and see what necessary measures can be taken further," Chairman Railway Board (CRB) A K Mital told PTI.
