Hi elainehughes, thanks for joining us!
Not all Golden Pass trains have VIP seats. It doesn't matter whether they're called "Panoramic" or "Classic". Only a few trains per day between Zweisimmen and Montreux (not Montreaux ;-)) offer such seats, so you have to find the right connection. This can be done by entering your trip in the timetable: from Lucerne to Montreux, with Meiringen and Zweisimmen as via-stations. Clicking on the "plus" symbol will get you details on each connection, and the timetable will state whether VIP seats between Zweisimmen and Montreux are available (in French: "avec places VIP"). For example: on August 4, the trains leaving from Zweisimmen at 12.25 and 18.25 have VIP seats.
The booking system also shows VIP seats, if available. You'd best follow the link on our Golden Pass tickets page and enter your connection. You'll get to see a lay-out of train compartments. VIP seats are the ones at the very front of the 1st class carriage, facing the front window.
I hope this helps you out!
