>> comments regarding the best rail trip from Chur to Lucerne
If you have enough time, the most scenic route would be part of the Glacier Express route (Chur to Andermatt), followed by part of the Gotthard Panorama route (all trains, or train and boat) from Andermatt to Luzern/Lucerne.
To get this route in the Swiss Timetable (using just trains), put via Andermatt into your timetable search.
If you also want to include the boat, you will need to do separate searches for the Chur-Flüelen via Andermatt sector and the Flüelen-Luzern sector.
For the boat sector, put in Flüelen (See) to Luzern Bahnhofquai. Use advanced search, and limit the transport type to Ship.
Lots of people take luggage on boats. I have taken luggage on the boat from Brienz to Interlaken Ost without any problems. I've always travelled luggage-free on the boat between Luzern and Flüelen, but I seem to recall someone else saying that there was a specific place for luggage on that boat in any case.
