I went on RS site to buy my Swiss Travel Passes and was ready to do so. However, I wanted to book the big windowed scenic trains, I believe it would be the Golden Pass train reservations for scenic segments? i.e. Zurich to Lucerne. Lucerne to Interlaken. Interlaken to Vevey or Lausaunne. and the direct return from Vevey/Lausaunne to Zurich. I did not see how to do that.
Do the Golden Pass scenic trains go to Vevey or just to Lausaune. How far apart are they? Is it walkable with or without a small rolling suitcase?
Are they the same routes if I did not get reservations on the Golden Pass trains?
If I have purchased first class Swiss Travel Passes, do I then pay an additional sum to get a Golden Pass train reservation?I see how to make the Swiss travel pass purchase, just not how to get reservations.
Also, I have tried to go on line to see train schedules which don't yet appear to be out.Perhaps this is why I am unable to see how to make reservations? How far out are they published?
What if I just took regular trains Zurich to Lucerne, Lucerne to Interlaken, Interlaken to vevey/lausaunne, but took the golden pass trains back? Is that cheaper?
Thanks for any help. J
