Lots of good information in this thread:

http://www.travelfish.org/board/post/thailand/11864_thai-railways-tickets

I recommend checking out:

http://www.seat61.com/Thailand.htm

They have several recommendations for agents that can help you out for a service fee.

Will you need this reservation 9 October next year? You have plenty of time between now and then to get it.

Unless you mean another month like November or December.

From when you arrive in Bangkok to when you need the train how many days in between? You may be able to book your tickets in person unless you plan on landing at BKK and immediately leaving the city.

This company claims that they can get the tickets for you:

Seat 61 is always helpful.

Good luck.
