Welcome to MySwissAlps chowxh!
For such a short day I would advise to pick one base town only. There are many options; please find an overview of popular towns here. If you want to be close to the Alps, Interlaken or a nearby town would be great. I'm not sure what railway you're referring to, but I assume it's the train up to the Jungfraujoch, which easily be reached from Interlaken.
As for your inbound trip: from Milan you would travel via Domodossola and Brig. If you're fond of scenic train routes, you should take the regional Lötschberg train via Goppenstein and Kandersteg, and then contintue to Spiez and Interlaken or Lucerne. Details are available in the timetable. You can enter 'via stations' to customize your itinerary.
You could catch a flight from Zurich Airport or Basel Airport and spend the night before your departure in a nearby hotel. Please refer to our overviews of hotels close to Zurich Airport and hotels close to Basel Airport.
It would be wise to look into a rail pass, as that will be cheaper than buying regular train tickets. A Swiss Card or a 3 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass would fit your plans.
Does this help you plan your stay?
