I can only tell you about the station as I did not have time to take the circular train. There is one route clockwise and one anticlockwise.
Times as follows anticlockwise.
08.40; 10.45; 11.15;13.40 ns16.40 hours.
08.20; 10.20; 11.20;13.05 and 14.30 hours.
I was told the trip takes about 3 hours and and if you have the time read the other trip advisor reviews as to what to investigate and where to disembark the train.
There were all sorts of Anglo/Burmese (anglo-indian) malapropisms and I photographed them, they made me chuckle. I saw time tables, itineraries classifications. You can travel ordinary class/first class and upper class!
I photographed the rolling stock, walked the platforms and actually saw the engine driver to a mainline train eating his lunch in the cab. Great clocks (analogue ..... Harry Potter)!
The main line seems to be around metre gauge and the circular train about 600 mm. My guess it does not get above 30 MPH! .
Now in the entrance yard to the station I saw no cars so you have to park somewhere else and I have no details to give you.
This is reputedly a good way to see some country life and you know the pace will be just right to absorb the detail and takes some good pictures.
However this trip is one only for railway enthusiasts (not fanatics).
The station is possibly walkable being about 20 minutes from the town centre but I had a taxi for the day and spent a delightful 20 minutes wandering the platform.
You will only be allowed onto the platforms if you seek the station masters consent. So go to the main entrance to the platforms then go left and look along the wall. You should see a an opening with a shabby door beyond. Knock and show your camera, say OK and gesticulate in the directions whilst smiling. Then go back to the platform entrance and get onto the platforms. I took the classic platform shots.
For sure there are no toilets on the train and I did not use them on the concourse but they will be there. Just expect them to be in the classic 50's style.
Would someone who travels this route advise us all of the price per head.
Have fun you trainees. By the way a good place to eat a packed lunch but make sure you have some cushions to sit on as it is 3 hours!
By the way I did not see a food court. at the station so do take your own food.
Be blessed as always.

PS Mums a tight rein on the little one as they can walk off whilst the train is in motion. Wheelchair users no chance on this one. Sorry about that as I know you enjoy a good view whilst journeying.
