    Try this website http://www.thairailticket.com/esrt/Default.aspx?language=1

    But as kiwigazza mentioned, many trains are now full at that time so it is best to book now.

    arundown, you and about 20,000 other partiers are heading down to KPG for NYE (Had Rin is insane for this period) so have a strategy for getting transport from Bangkok to Surat Thani and get going a few days in advance for better prospects of a train/bus (and a place to stay on the island). As others have recommended book train online or if that fails get to the southern bus terminal in Bangkok the day you want to go and take any sleeper bus available. Bus/van/songthaew and ferry connections are relatively easy to the island once you're in Surat Thani (Phunphin district) down south.
