    Check out www.seat61.com. It provides coverage of train travel (as well as some other transportation types) throughout the world, including SE Asia. As far as I know you can only take the train to Bangkok from Vientiane (http://www.seat61.com/Laos.htm).

    Koh Samui is an Island - so no train. You could go to Bangkok, then catch the train to Surat Thani. From there you can take a boat. Long trip so you might want to break it up with a couple of days in Bangkok.
