Train to Abisko, Sweden

My husband and I ( Australians in our 70s) are planning a six night stay in Abisko, Lapland in January 2021. We plan to travel there and back from Stockholm by train.
I am finding it very difficult to find where to investigate train times, and costs with a view to booking. I expect it is not possible to actually book at this early stage but just need to find out approximate costs and schedules to coordinate with our booking in Abisko.
We plan to fly to Stockholm via Moscow and are considering a two night stopover there on our way from Singapore. Just seems too good to pass up seeing the flight from Singapore to Stockholm touches down in Moscow on the way.
We are hoping to have four or five nights in Stockholm before setting off on an overnight train tp Abisko.
Any help and hints would be greatly appreciated.

You need the Swedish Railways website.

Stopover in Moscow is a great idea, but 2 nights is not enough time and you need a visa.

Thank you Odin.
I have visited the train site and can now see the trains. It is obviously too early to purchase tickets yet. Do you know how far ahead I can do this?
Cheers

Thank you, you've been most helpful.
Hope all this panic about corona virus is over by then and we are able to go.
Cheers
