Kazakhstan trains from Aktau or Aytrau to Shymkent

I am taking ferry from Baku to either Aktau or Atyrau. Does anyone know which is best for catching train to Shymkent? I only have Kazakhstan visa so cannot go via Uzbek etc. Also do you have to change trains at any particular station?. Have tried the Railway timetable but no joy with info. Thanks
