I am travelling in Switzerland with my wife during July intending to travel by rail between planned destinations. The outline itinerary is below; my question is whether experts in the region would advise travelling by scenic train on the routes between destinations or whether we could get as much enjoyment out of travelling on 'normal' trains along the routes? Also, whether there are normal trains travelling on exactly the same routes as the scenic trains; and apart from the panoramic windows/roofs what would be the difference. Many thanks.
