Railways delivers record 32,000 MT of medical oxygen to nation
To ensure that LMO supplies are reached in the fastest time possible, the Railways has created new standards and benchmarks in running these Oxygen Express services. The average speed of the special freight trains is maintained above 55 km/hr in most cases over long distances. Running on high-priority Green Corridors, operational teams of various zones have been working round-the-clock in most challenging circumstances to ensure a smooth operation. Technical stoppages have been reduced to one minute for crew changes on different sections.
