Bicycles on Trains in Switzerland, etc.

As the Rail Europe site is of little help, what is the policy of taking bicycles - both in a box and assembled - on intercity and country-to-country trains from and to Switzerland? I've had absolutely no problem doing so in other European countries - roll it on, roll it off - but am wondering about taking it between Switzerland and Austria, Italy or Hungary. Are reservations necessary? Is a fee assessed?

I've seen an entire Swiss train coach just for bikes. I've been on Swiss trains with the guy beside of me holding his bike. Don't know the official policy. You can probably find more info on
