There is a news item in DC dt 10 Jan that this train is going to run with CBC rake from 26 Jan from sec bad and from 28 Jan from BHUBANESWAR .It is also mentioned that a sleeper coach will be replaced by a 3AC coach .So there will be 5 Third AC coaches (4 Third AC coaches now) and 13 sleeper coaches (14 sleepers now).But its running time is very boring .It should be reduced .
Once the BZA-Bhimavaram doubling over and if at VSKP becomes part of single AP zone. Then many slacks will be removed. Present BZA - VSKP its taking 8 hrs 15 min. It can be reduced easily by 1 hrs after all these infra developments.

Exactly what I logged on to confirm. I spotted 17015 with CBC rake at RJY on 28th. Loco (s) were GY WDP4 TWINS!
90% of the rake was 2005 made, suggesting that it's cobbled together with the discarded coaches of SCR kings like 12727 (fully 2017), 12737 (part 2017)
