Train #61 Sleeper, Myanmar Railways (Myanmar Railways), Mar 25, 2020
So.... first class sleeper in Myanmar is not what you'd see elsewhere in the world. Take a jacket or extra blanket and pack snacks. The sleeper is not assessed from the rest of the train.... I'd do it again I. A heartbeat, just better prepared.

Bus kept stopping to pick people (friends up ) tooting of the horn !!
Lights kept going on and off and we were sitting near the back and every time some one got on ,, all they wanted to do was talk ???

The train left on time and arrived in Bagan at 11am. The 12go arrival time of 9.30 is incorrect.
We booked all 4 berths and had lots of room. Watch out for people selling food for the journey on platform - they are charming but try to charge far too much. We ordered sweet and sour chicken with fried rice from the official train steward who advised we would get it at 7pm and sure enough we arrived at a station and the food was handed to us. It was very tasty and plenty for 2 people - cost 6,000 kyat.
We enjoyed the journey through the countryside and slept reasonably well. A pillow and sheet are provided. As it got cooler we switched off the fan. For security during the night we closed the windows and doors.
The toilet facilities were fine - take own toilet paper. There was some water to ‘flush’ with.
All in all a trip well worth doing

We elected to pick up our tickets at the office. It was very hard to find. The directions were not accurate, and when we finally find it we were sent to another office down the street. Very frustrating and unprofessional. The train ride was just as described.

A must do once trip !. Not much sleep with the rocking and noise but what a way to see the countryside. Food good, though a little expensive for what is was. Toilet was basic , it’s all you need.
The county and the people , priceless !
