Start with the famous train authority, the Man in Seat 61: http://seat61.com/. On the left, he has directions on getting from England to each country in Europe (and beyond). But once you choose the country, scroll down to get more information about other train connections, buying tickets, etc. For train schedules in Europe, the best source is the German rail (Bahn) website. Here's how to use it: http://www.ricksteves.com/plan/tips/db_tips.htm

You did say budget wasn't a big issue? Try this http://www.danube-express.com/. I have been to all of the stops along the way and its worth the effort. While I love the region I don't much care for the trains in the region. This is the only way I would take a train between the Bosporus and the Hungarian border.
