Hi Liam,

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...
