I think they mean that the new station supporting the dual track and high speed rail is being built a few hundred meters further south of the current station.  The current station may be "retiring", therefore the Hua Hin train station is "moving".

Well, what they should have said is that a new station will be built as part of the dual track project but the article clearly says that "the station has been relocated" which is not true.

 

Incidentally, according to reports from various different media sources the high speed rail project has been shelved.

 

Thai PBS World for example, reported that it is no longer in government spending plans, as follows:

For the Bangkok-Surat Thani high-speed project, the government doubts that the project is economically viable, due to high investment costs and the short 600 kilometre route, which may not attract investors from the private sector. They noted that a conventional dual-track south-bound route is already under construction and will be operational in the next 3-4 years.
