Prayag ghat ( N.R. Lko division).
The station prayag ghat is opp. Daraganj station,allahabad the scenario is same as in lko and ljn ,but daraganj and prayag ghat are much closer & had never seen station so close to each other belonging to two seperate zones, if you are in train at daraganj you can see prayag ghat easily from window. The distance between daraganj to prayag ghat is hardly 100 mtrs.
The station has been in very poor condition , but in a decade it will be lifeline for
allahabadis , ohe poles has not been erected from prg to pyg, but will be electrified as development starts. I hope in a year or two NR will develop pyg as due to rise of pressure of trains at prayag , it alone could not handle because it lacks space and no scope for further devlopment , Prayag has 3 platform and total 6 lines . Loops are used to stable 2-3 passenger train rake daily . Prayag ghat is just about 2 km from sangam. Presently no train operate from station. Station has 5 platforms ( 4 low level + 1 rail level ) and a good big rail yard .
Here are some pics of the hidden gem of NR in allahabad .

I think we need to get it right from somewhere. In my view, Mahakumbh is held at every 12 years.
