El tráfico no está permitido en el Kumbh Mela, excepto para el transporte de algunos sadhus y en ocasiones muy especiales, por lo que en estos momentos cualquier cosa que se mueve es buena
Es muy agradable caminar sin el tráfico y sin escuchar las "bocinas" que se escuchan normalmente en la India

It is very nice to walk without the traffic and the noise of the "horns" that you listen normally in India
This is the main city train station. I arrived here on a very slow train from Lucknow. The journey took 6 hours to do just the 200km (120 miles) not helped by stopping at 2 stations for half-an-hour at each, the last one just 10km away from Allahabad itself. As with all stations in India, there's a lot of people moving around and also standing in the queues waiting to be served for reserving onward trains. At the booking office on the northern side I was told to stand at a counter where the only English word was "SUPERVISOR". I got served within 5 minutes of waiting, which was good! I took an early morning train out of Allahabad to Varanasi (No.2562) which took about 3 hours. I eventually found the train after being told it was on platform 8 and assumed it was over the bridge but the platforms only went up to number 7! I then enquired again and was told that it was at the end of platform 1 - makes sense!
