train 171 bangkok to chumphon help !!

Hi, anybody any experience of booking trains in thailand?

trying to book 171 train from bangkok to chumphon but the thai railways site says its not available/unable to book online.

Is it really sold out?? (booking for 13th august!) also noticed its a 'rapid' train and it seems that all this type of service is unavailable/sold out?

confused and worrying ive buggered my itinerary up!

I dont think the website works correctly .. email them and ask to book.. you then just pick up the tickets from the Advance Bookings office when you get to the station.. easy to find massive sign up in the corner near the toilets.. to the right of all the ticket counters!
