Last Tuesday, while I was returning back to SSPN by Kondaveedu Express, YPR-INDB left from PF4 with a SWR rake while the WR rake for this train was on PF5. Why was this done?

Hi all. I am posting a trip report here after a long time.
As usual, things began when my new collegemates pinged me on Thursday night at 10:45pm asking me if I could join them for a Chennai temple tour. I agreed and decided to book a up and down by Mail.
Coach number:S3
Berth Number:36
Coach Make:13223
Loco:RPM WAP7
To reach SBC,I went to KGI to take Hampi Express which arrived on the dot with a KJM WDP4B 40002. The train sped past the suburbs and as usual was halted at Binny Mill for

25 minutes. We pulled into pf 6 with the Lalbagh Express on PF5. I entered the platform 1 where the rake was already standing. My coach was a 13 make with bio-toilets. Soon, GHY SF was backed into PF2 and the unreserved coaches became full in an instant. The GHY SF was to be led by oldie WAP1 of RPM. At 22:45, our loco, a P7 gave a toot and I was off to the city I proudly call my hometown. TheTTE checked the tickets and I clambered onto 27 Ub at the behest of an old lady. BNC was dispatched in no time and I decided to turn in for the day. After an unscheduled halt near BYPL, our train started accelerating like the rear was ignited with a pair of rocket boosters.
I slept and woke up near VysarapadI, and to my surprise we were late!!!. Soon, a WAP4 crossed us with a train bound to Kerala I guess and she was followed by a TNP WDM2S leading a rake of old coaches. We finally got.the green signal to go and reached MAS at 5am pf 10. The rake of Howrah mail was on platform 9 and the loco was a ET P4.
I made my way to Park and took a local to MKK to my aunt's place. My Chennai adventure had begun.

PATNA: Come July, the railways will permanently withdraw the services of two passenger trains, running since pre-Independence period via Patna Junction, on Howrah-Delhi route. The two trains, Howrah-New Delhi Lal Quila Express and Howrah-Delhi Janata Express, presently running with less number of bogies and hardly catering to the needs of...

common passengers.
A notification to this effect has been issued by Railway Board, informed ECR CPRO Arvind Rajak.
According to sources, railways has also announced to stop reservation of berths for these two trains from July 1.
The move has drew a lot of reactions from various quarters, including majdoor sangh and passenger association. Both bodies have requested the board to rethink over it.
Rajak said railways would soon run an express train with full load combination between Howrah and Delhi via Patna Junction in place of these two passenger trains.
Bhartiya Majdoor Sangh general secretary U K Pathak criticized the move to withdraw the services of these two oldest passenger trains, which are the cheapest mode of communications for the common people. Besides, these two trains have been linking three states West Bengal, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and providing an easy mode of communication for the common people, he said.
The Bihar Daily Passenger Association (BDPA) has also opposed the move and urged the Board to continue services of these two trains in the larger interest of common people especially labour class who mostly prefer to travel by these two trains. Besides, the two trains have been providing alternative services for the daily commuters between Jhajha and Mughalsarai in Bihar, BDPA president B N Sahay said.
