do not insist on 1st class (Spalny Wagon = 2 berth in the cabin) 2nd class (Kupe = 4 berth in a cabin). But try first Spalny wagon, then Kupe.
It is an overnight journey, not 48 or 60 hours on the far east lines.
August is at the end of the high season, I think you should try to get the tickets on day of arrival.
Go to the Moskovskaja station, they have a separate counter for foreigners.

8Actually on this particular train there is no first class, only kupe (2nd), platskart (3rd), and sidyachii (4th).
You can also get tickets from the central ticket office on Kanal Griboyedova near Nevsky Prospekt. I took this train a couple years ago in June and on the day of travel there was only the 4th class left, which I can't really recommend as it's just seats that barely recline.

9I would recommend: Go to the Main station in St. P. on day of arrival and buy the train ticket from Novgorod to Moskva...You can also get tickets from the central ticket office on Kanal Griboyedova near Nevsky Prospekt.
I also bought them from the office on Griboedova before I left St P and approx 2/3 days before leaving Novgorod...
