Allahabad was an important junction on the main line of the East Indian Railway. Here, the line from Calcutta bifurcated with one line running north to Delhi and the other south-west to Jubbulpore where there was an end-to-end connection with the Great Indian Peninsula Railway's main line from Bombay. In 1925, when both the EIR and GIPR became state railways, the section from Jubbulpore to Allahabad was transferred to the GIPR. The Oudh and Rohilkhand Railway had a terminus at Allahabad.
