Leave your luggage at Brienz station. There is a left luggage office open Mon–Fri 08:20 - 11:40 13:20 - 17:45.

When are you travelling? This suggests BR only runs from 2 June.

Yes, that's a good option. Alternatively, you can send your luggage to where you are going to that day: ain/practical/luggage.

I would not take it in the cogwheel train up the mountain. That's a hassle; you won't be able to fully enjoy the trip and move around a bit at the top.

I agree with rockoyster and Arno that your luggage is best left behind.

The trains are are quite small, and there is an uphill slope to walk up at the top. I have attached some pictures showing the carriages and the path from the station at the top to the restaurant and viewing points.
