Puidoux-Chexbres is a station on the main railway line Lausanne - Berne. regional trains stop there. From Puidoux-Chexbres, CFF (as SBB is called in French Switzerland) has a secondary line to Vevey. In the timetable, the station you want to enter is Chexbres-Village. By the way, the x and the s in Chexbres are not pronounced. It is Shaibr, sort of.
The last part of the trail from Chexbres to Vevey is described here: www.wanderland.ch/en/r outes/route/etappe-01200.html
on the same site, you will find a map that is much more detailed than Google's. As for the type of trails, I have never been on that particular one, but from other hikes I've done in the Lavaux vinyards, you should expect narrow, paved local roads with almost no traffic.
