Beijing to Xian?

Hey all, I'm in the midst of planning my 30 day trip to China.

My partner and I are spending 6 days in Beijing to start, then down to Xian for 2 nights. My question is, should we get a plane or should we train it?

I'm keen to experience a train to see all the scenery, but I am really not keen on an overnight train. I don't want to sleep on one at all. So, keeping that in mind, is there a fast train to Xian? Are tickets hard to come by? When do they get released for purchase?

Thanks very much in advance! :)

@Ivan Y - your information is wrong. Tickets can be bought 20 days ahead, even during the holidays.
