Kanpur Anwarganj is a railway station in Kanpur. It is the second largest station in Kanpur after Kanpur Central. It has three platforms. It was constructed during the British Raj. It has one big clock on its main building. It is on the Farrukhabad-Kanpur line. Until 2006 it was a metre gauge station. In 2006 Railway Minister Sri Lalu Prasad Yadav reopened the line as a broad gauge railway line towards Lucknow. The first station superintendent was Mr. V.N. Pandey. In 2008 a broad gauge line opened towards Mathura too.

Kanpur Anwarganj serves trains of Lucknow-Kanpur Suburban Railway to reduce pressure on Kanpur Central. Some MEMU trains start from here.[1] Kanpur Anwarganj is now linked with some new stations like New Delhi, Mathura, Agra, Jaipur, Gorakhpur, Chapra, Patna, Kolkata, etc. Now Kanpur Anwarganj is one of the main railway station on the route to Rajasthan and Eastern India.[citation needed]
