The Oxygen Express trains were run to fulfill requirements of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Karnataka, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh and Delhi.

"This has been made possible due to the untiring efforts of railway employees who have been working round the clock to ensure fastest transportation of Oxygen Express trains," said Sanjay Ghosh, chief public relations officer of South Eastern Railway.
