Hello,
Train tickets are often hard to get in China. I suggest you book through an agent. The ticket fare differs from each other according to the train type and the seat. The faster train with more comfortable seat is much more pricy. You can try to book tickets through this site:

Dear Sirs,

I am trying to find this info, but it has been hard: does the train from Shanghai to Lhasa run every day? So far I have found quite contradictory information on this, so I would really appreciate your reply. Thanks a lot!

hi, the train schedule from shanghai to lhasa would be adjusted in different season. so you'd better check with the ticket office after you have a rough idea on your travel date.

It is quite cold at that time, July to September is the best time, or October is fine too. As to the low pressure there, it depends. You can choose some lower place to visit, such as Lyingchi. Keep warm.
