Judging from my experience, you shouldn't have a problem getting tickets for trains to Kyrgyzstan from places like Shymkent, Taraz or Almaty even at last minute, as the train are so much slower than the corresponding buses, marshrutkas or shared taxis.

Similar situation for the opposite direction, the trains fill up once you're on Kazakh territory.

Not that I know of. I remember rumours of it being reinstated (see viewtopic.php?f=12&t=15279), but I guess it hasn’t happened. At least not yet.
