>> Also is there going to be any snow in August that we can see from the train routes?
Along the Bernina Express route, you will see some glaciers in August, but no snow, unless it has just fallen due to an unseasonal turn in the weather. If it does snow, it probably won't hang around for long. I have attached some photos of glaciers you can see on the Bernina Express route. These photos were taken in late September last year.
If you are staying in St Moritz or nearby, and have time to go up to the Diavolezza, that is a lovely glacier to see. You pass the Diavolezza cable car valley station in the Bernina Express, but cannot see the glacier from the train. I have attached some photos, also from late September last year.
As for the Glacier Express route, I would not think you would see any snow at that time of year. Last August, I went across the Oberalppass (which is the highest point of the Glacier Express route) and there was no snow at all. You can see my trip report here:
However, you never can tell with weather in the alps!
