Set a victory target of 341 on the final day, UP were looking to for a draw and a point as they were all-out in 42 overs with Himanshu Asnora (19) being only player to reach double digits.
Portly IPL sensation Sarfaraz Khan got a taste of top quality seam bowling in longer format as his technique was left thoroughly exposed.
Having failed to open his account in the first innings, Sarfaraz was all at sea against moving ball as he played 85 deliveries to score five before offering a catch to Arnab Nandi off Anureet's bowling.
In the morning, Railways started the day at 155 for three and declared at 229 for four.
