Leaving Taunggyi by train

I can see a train line on googlemaps but can not find a timetable for trains. I would like to go

from Taunggyi to Bagan by train or combination train/bus. Is this possible to anyone's knowledge?

Thank you.

You saw on the map is Taunggyi-Kyauktalone(Kakku) railway and only run once a day.

If you like to go Bagan by train,you have to take combination train.

Thank you for the warning that the train is only once a day!

Is the best place to change to bus or other train Thazi? Or maybe Meiktila?

Or is there a better way for a foreigner to get to Bagan from Taunggyi? I don't mind an overnight transport or sleeping along the way for a night.

will appreciate any and all information.

From Inle(Nyaung Shwe) to Bagan,you can use night or day bus.If you like to get slow train experience mix with locals,you can ride from Shwe Nyaung( junction) to Kalaw.2-3 hrs ride.I prefer night bus,it's save time and some money I think.

If you like to know about tickets and some detail informations,I'll give you a contact.They're not bad and helpful.
