In addition to trains and haywagons, some walked from Romania to ports of embarkation. According to the Spring 1997 ROM-SIG Newsletter (v.5, #3, p.4), "A unique group of very poor, but highly motivated, young Jews (Fusgeyers) walked from Moldavia across Europe to Antwerp and sailed to America." Just Google "Fusgeyers," and you will find numerous sources.
