The East Indian Railway Company initiated efforts to develop a railway line from Howrah to Delhi in the mid-nineteenth century. Even when the line to Mughalsarai was being constructed and only the lines near Howrah were put in operation, the first train ran from Allahabad to Kanpur in 1859 and the Kanpur-Etawah section was opened to traffic in the 1860s. For the first through train from Howrah to Delhi in 1864, coaches were ferried on boats across the Yamuna at Allahabad. With the completion of the Old Naini Bridge across the Yamuna, through trains started running in 1865-66.

- There is still no vehicle stand for parking.
- Here are many facilities available to passengers but the quality of these facilities is very poor.
- Waiting halls have very poor quality as compared to its status.
- There are no additional lines for departing originating trains and stopping terminating trains.
- Although the new booking station is built but it is not beautified yet.
