Train is a non-starter, but a scenic route by bus would be something like:
Kanchanaburi-> Suphanburi-> Sa Kaeo-> Chanthaburi -> Trat
The above would be a FULL day of bus travel, the longest leg would be Suphan to Sa Kaeo (I don't know that there is such a bus -- at worst you'd need to change buses at Nakhon Nayok).
On the upside, consider breaking the trip at Nakhon Nayok -- it's a good point from which to visit Khao Yai National Park...
i drove from the outskirts of bangkok to koh chang and its a very long way, took nearly all day and thats driving-quicker than buses obviously. i'm not trying to put you off, just warning you. have a good trip!
