    There are trains to/from Alamty, but they take sooooooooooooooo long. It's cheaper, easier and faster to take a shared taxi or matshrutka (mini-bus)

    There are only a couple trains a week. I can't remember which days. Don't bother with trains, take a matshutka. It's about 3 hours by car (including border formalities)
