Hi, I'm afriad that you are unable to purchase these tickets before you departing for your journey, for most train tickets in China are sold 10 days ahead. For the train schedule and ticket fare, you can search by youeself at China Train Schedule(https://www.travelchinaguide.com/china-trains/) by entering the leaving and arrival stations.

Hi, as far as I know, you cannot book the ticket if you are not in China, so when you come to Beijing in April 3rd, go to the Beijing Railway Station to buy the ticket to Pingyao, or if you have friends in Beijing, you can ask them to buy the tickets for you in advance.

Have a nice trip in China!
