Hi Bill and welcome to MySwissAlps!

I think this is a bit too much moving around for your trip.
Personally I would cut out Bern as it doesn't fit well into your itinerary (but this depends on your focus for the trip and it is a nice city).

I'd also skip Schaffhausen (you are going for the Rheinfalls I assume?).

I would look at staying a 2 or 3 nights in Luzern (day trips to Mt. Titlis and Bern perhaps). Then move on to the Jungfrau region and stay in a mountain village like Grindelwald or Wengen for a 2 or 3 nights. Then your 2 nights in Zermatt, 1 or 2 nights in Lausanne or Montreux and then finish in Geneva. How you allocate your nights depends on what is more important to you to see (shop, mountains, towns/villages).

Hello Bill,

Your “( Wonder if we can store our luggage in Engelberg train station )” line should be under your trip to Titlis, yes?

You would be better leaving luggage in Lucerne. Either at main station or usually your hotel will store it for you to collect later in the day (if hotel not too far from station).
