54 is right.
Yes I discovered the time problem with the Lauterbrunnen - Montreux route. I think I may have figured out a solution. Please let me know if you think my first option makes sense.
Interlaken Ost - Montreux does have same day delivery. So we could leave Lauterbrunnen really early the day we are travelling and get to Interlaken Ost to drop our luggage off there for their same day delivery. There is a train from Lauterbrunnen that gets us into Interlaken Ost at 8:24. A half hour should be plenty of time to bring our luggage to the Express Baggage area, correct? We'd miss out on our included breakfast at the hotel in Lauterbrunnen, but perhaps they could bag something for us. Not really a major concern.
The other option is dropping off our luggage at the train station the day before we leave Lauterbrunnen, and just keep an overnight bag with us for our last day and overnight there. But that means having to carry around that overnight bag all the next day. So not really a good choice.
I realize we could change our plans and stay in Interlaken Ost, but I know that is not as nice a place to stay as Lauterbrunnen will be. So that isn't really an option.
Fortunately the Zermatt to Lauterbrunnen baggage transfer will work far more easily.
