I have a plan of undertaking Golden Pass Line journey from Lucerne to Montreux on 11th Spet.'15. Initially had planned to return back on the same day and then proceed to Zurich during late evening. Now I am planning to visit Rochers de Naye from Montreux, back to Montreux then catch a train to Zurich from there itself. I would like to know:

1. Whether Golden Pass Line trains have toilet facility?

2.Whether Golden Pass Line trains have space to store our luggage?

3. Is it possible to start from Lucerne around 0830 hrs and undertake above journey and reach Zurich before 2000 hrs?

Welcome to MySwissAlps, hsshastry!

Yes, you will manage to do this as a day trip. You can find details and traveling times with the aid of the general timetable and the Golden Pass pdf timetable. If you leave early, you will be able to spend sufficient time on the trip up to Rochers-de-Naye. The most direct route back from Montreux to Zurich takes about 2h35, so you should leave from Montreux no later than 5 or 5h30 pm in order to arrive in Zurich in time.

Toilet and luggage facilities are available in Golden Pass trains.

Is cloakroom available at Montreux Railway station? So that I may keep my luggage there and collect back once I return from Rochers -de -Naye.

Hi

We will be travelling from Geneva to Interlaken on the 21st of July. We have a Eurail France-switzerland pass. Are the Goldenpass panoramic trains covered under this pass? If so then do we need to make reservations? Cause I read on another forum that we can hop on and off anytime.

Thanks

Varun
