Thanks to both of you who replied. We liked the idea of using Lucerne as the base of our travels.
We hope to get the 0904 train on Sunday in Basel, arriving 1004 in Lucerne an hour later. We would use the rest of the day doing as much as we can in the area, based on what is open in April.
On Monday we will do Jungfrau from Interlaken using one route up and another route down and then return to Lucerne. In case the weather is not suitable for Jungfrau, we would like alternate suggestions as to where and what we could do to maximize our sightseeing?
Tuesday, we will take the train to Zurich, check our bags in a locker at the station and do as much bus touring as we can of the city. After dinner, we will take the train out to our hotel in Kloten and prepare for our 0700 flight back to the USA
After the train schedules and fares are updated for 2017, we will be asking for advice on rail cards, dining and tour details.
This is a fantastic site and by watching the posts the rest of the year, I am sure we will be well prepared for our 2017 travels.
