Delivery of actual train tickets was prompt.
We were put in Cabin D with another couple from Belgium, so it wasn't a lonely night.
As I have done my research, I knew I had to bring longyi to cover myself. The operation did give pillow and sheet, but it's very random, some bed have, and some beds don't.
Make sure to download an off-line map to know whereabouts I am, as the announcement was in Burmese.
It was an experience that is enough, just for once. Won't do it again. I use my own scarf to cover. BTW Cabin F is more private as there are only 2 beds.

Nos buscó en horario y llegó en horario.
Antes de salir de la ciudad se detuvo a cambiar una cubierta. Esta tarea la hubiera tenido que realizar con anterioridad a la búsqueda de los pasajeros.
Los pasajeros que se agregan en distintas paradas y van sentados en banquitos en el pasillo resultan una incomodidad para todos.
No es recomendable para viajeros que llevan mucho equipaje.
Que te recojan en el hotel es un valor adicional.
Lo volveríamos a contratar.

The only thing that was helpful - delivery of tickets to hotel.
The train station is difficult in navigation, no English instructions, no English speaking employees. I had to catch people outside to help me find train. The train itself is also stinky, dirty and cold. But at least it departures and arrives on time

Service of 12GO was perfect, with my ticket delivered to the hotel in the morning of departure.
The train left Mandalay Central 9:00p.m. sharp, and arrived in Bagan only 15-20 mins. behind the schedule.
The floor under my seat was very dirty with lots of egg shells, however, all other places looked clean enough.
As the train sways a lot, you feel as if you were on boat. So, if you get motion sickness easily, I recommend that you should not take train.
The seat was big enough and comfortable to sleep in, but the window next to my seat was broken, and I couldn't close it. Freeeezing!!!

I chose train because this was the only transportation that I found for traveling during the night. Overall was ok except a bit bumpy..

It is quite comfortable to sleep for the sleeping class. However, it is a bit cold as there is not provide enough thing for you to cover the body.

The train itself was not very clean, the toilet is more like an “insect museum” with “specimens” of dragonflies and spiders. There are no English-speaking staff, all announcements are made in Burmese which makes it difficult for foreigners not traveling with a local.

Train is really old and dirty. It’s really loud and sways a lot as well. The only plus point is that you get clean sheets. It would be fun to experience it once, but you probably wouldn’t want to go through it again.

It was nice to be fetched at our hotel instead of finding our way to the bus station in Mandalay. The trip took a bit more than 5 hours. There was little room in the bus for luggage so we had to have our knees full all the time. The bus became filled up during the journey. It was not comfortable. The worst was the scam at the bus station in Bagan since there was no connection to the hotel offered. We had to pay 16000kyat for a 4,2km taxi ride and the driver was not happy when I did not offer him a tip. It is a real shame that the bus company refers its customers to such bandits !! We paid 30000 kyat for 10 hours and 60km private taxi driving in Bagan the full next day.

Except of clean sheets nothing was first class. Train was very old, super slow, overall quality was disappointing, but it was still fun to do it once as an experience, but would rather not do it again...

The trip was quick, the bus driver really made speed, so that was a good thing (I've had trips in a minivan before when the bus driver was really slow and picked up all kind of locals along the road to make some kyats for himself, but this time nothing like that). 12GoAsia however should make it more clear on the website that these are local buses for local transport. Not for travellers! There waa no room for my backpack or other suitcases, they were piled up everywhere. Leg room was really insufficient for a guy my height (1.85 m). I couldn't sit in my seat and there was no room for my legs i the aisle so I had to stand up a long time. Airco was fine. Few stops though. Not recommended but whatever, it took us to Bagan in one piece :-)

Bus left on time and arrived early but those were the only positives. Admittedly I'm a relatively tall person, but I couldn't fit in the seat, so needed my knees out to the side (as is sometimes the case). But then they put stools down the middle of the bus and had people sit in the aisle, so my knees had nowhere to go! Extremely uncomfortable 5 hours.
