Taxi from Cusco to Poroy rail station

Hi, I'm planning a trip to Machu Picchu. I'll stay in Cusco for a couple of days and then catch the 6:53am Vistadome train from Poroy. There are a few things I'm uncerrtain about and hope some TAs out there have made the same trip.

1) Is 30 minutes enough time to drive from Cusco to Poroy (it's early so I wouldn't expect a lot of traffic)?

2) How easy is it to get taxis at 5:45 in the morning in Cusco? I will probably stay in a hotel close to San Pedro station - are cabs queued at the station that early?

3) I think I read somewhere that the cabs are not metered so the fare is agreed before the trip - how many Sols is a fair fare for this trip?

Thanks for your help
