Tundla Junction is an important station in Uttar Pradesh. It is located on the Delhi–Kanpur main line 25 km from Agra City. Tundla is a technical halt for changing drivers and guards for almost all of the trains on the New Delhi–Mughalsarai / Lucknow sections. The station was built by the British and remains essentially unchanged. The railway station is a site in itself and takes one back to the pre-independence era.
Tundla Junction is important for the people of Agra and for tourists providing connections to the east of the country, i.e. Kolkata, Guwahati, Patna etc., and especially to the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. It has connections to Agra Cantonment, Etawah, Aligarh Junction, Phaphund, Kanpur Central railway station etc.
