train from Trivandrum to Chennai

We are a family of 3 (parents and 14 year old daughter) spending February and March in India. The plan is to fly in to Kochi and head down the coast to Trivandrum. Does anyone know about an overnight train from Trivandrum to Chennai? Times? cost? I thought I would book those tickets in advance and have them sent to whatever hotel we book in Kochi.
We'll have 2 weeks in Kerala before heading to Chennai in time to catch an 8 day Tamil Nadu pilgrimage tour, then fly north.

2 weeks kerala/ 8 days Tamil Nadu/ fly to Rajasthan (Jaipur, pushkar, if enough time go further west), train to Agra and environs, train to the Corbett Tiger reserve, on to Rishikesh and home from Delhi. Too much? We want lots of hang out time, just watching India from a bench, a cafe, a market.
