Keep in mind that this is Thailand! Specifically, your departure and arrival times are more of a suggestion than a guarantee. This author recently took the train from Bangkok to Khao Sok and arrived five hours late. Therefore, it would be wise to give yourself several free hours on your arrival day as a cushion.
Once you arrive at the Surat Thani train station in PhunPhin, you will find many travel operators eager for your business. In contrast to the characters you will find elsewhere in Surat Thani, the people you will meet at the train station are fairly trustworthy. Here, you can get a shared minivan to Khao Sok for about 250B/person. There are also cars for hire at the train station starting at 2,000B. Finally, Khao Sok Riverside Cottage is happy to arrange private transfers from the Surat Thani train station. We charge 2,000 for three people, and 2,200B for four or more.
