I am posting a new thread as my previous one of 23th of May was closed. I am looking some guidance from the experts about my trip mentioned as below in my previous thread with title ‘9 Days in Switzerland in June end with 3 year old’
Will be traveling with my wife and my son of 3years and so want to cover major portions without making it a difficult trip with a baby. We have now to finalize the train which we will be using for different trips mentioned below on which we need your suggestion. Learned from the forum about Golden pass line, Bernina express, Glacier express, I would like to know what would be the routes in the below itinerary I can board on these trains so that I can cover the maximum with the STP.
Also as staying for 10days as per dates, I am thinking to take 8day pass from the second day as this will help me take the train on the 9th day early morning to catch my flight at 6am. I may take the train at 2am or 3am. Please comment on the same if it will be ok.
Vevey - 2night
Wengen - 3nights
Lucern - 2nights
Zurich - 2nights
Geneva - Arrival at 12:30pm Geneva Airport to Vevey by train.
Day1 - Check-in hotel in Vevey by 3PM for 3nights

Please suggest the sequence of the trip, should we do Cailler chocolate factory first to continue to Gruyere or the other way will be better as we need to continue to Wengen after that.
