    Our final leg southbound after Chiang Mai is the night train to Surat Thani or Trang, now if we can get a morning flight from Chiang Mai is it worth jumping a train to Hui Hun, have a few hours there early evening then carry our trip on southbound. Would only be 4 - 6 hours but as a place is it worth calling it, or is Cha-am better or just sack it off totally?

    Can not comment on the whole trip because I've never done it but Hua Hin is just a fancy beach town and it depends on why you'd like to stop there.
    There aren't any big sights that are "un-missable". If it's just to get a proper meal and stretch your legs by all means do it. It is touristy though.

    For me, personally, I would either stop there for a night or get the whole trip over with and don't stop in Hua Hin, or Cha-am for that matter, at all.

    No, this is in practice not possible by TRAIN-on which you should not jump anytime, just board it when it has stopped. This due to the timetables, eternal delays etc. and in this case due to the much longer route they travel as direct road.
    By BUS quite feasible and will double your time over there-BTW thet place is named as above correct; Hua Hin= stone head.
    There hardly is any diff beteen HH or Ch-and Ch has even fewer trains stopping. As above: beachsidetowns, mainly aiming at 65+ Scandinavian pensioners.
    Really for me BKK is the place to be-as thats again where I am now and has soo much to offer that after so many years it still keeps me entertained. So why not for you? Or make it a daytrip out to un kown places in/around BKK-chack bangkokdaytrips.com
