>> Hi, I'll arrive at Zurich airport and then need to take the train to Wengen. It would take 3 hours and 15 minutes.
I would like to ask about if I can reserve a private room because one of my family members is disabled, so can you please tell me which train has this service? and I would like to travel the fastest possible way to there.
Swiss trains on the long-distance routes are mostly configured with open-plan carriages with groups of seats facing each other. Second class has groups of 4 seats on each side of the aisle, while first class has a group of 4 seats on one side of the aisle and a group of 2 seats on the other side. You can see some pictures here (scroll down the page):
All services from Zürich Flughafen (airport) to Wengen will require at least 3 changes of train, at Bern, Interlaken Ost and Lauterbrunnen. Some services also require an extra change at Zürich Hauptbahnhof (Zürich main station) or at Spiez, so you might want to avoid those services.
If you think you might need extra time to transfer between trains because of your family member's disability, you can change the "Duration of transfer" in the online timetable to get options with longer transfer times (see attached picture).
If your family member's disability affects their mobility, you might find this link useful:
I hope this information is helpful.
