Thanks rockoyster, Alpenrose666, and Arno,
I know each of you are experts, and I really appreciate the comments. But let me see if I understand some things. The Cheese Train will be running in 2019 from Jan - Mar on weekends, then May (date?) - Sept at different days of the week. I assume I can purchase reservations and/or tickets on MOB Panoramic, but it was not clear about which was the Cheese Train. I will look further into that.
Then about the Gotthard Panoramic Train, the previous times I mentioned are correct. Is there any big difference in this train over the regional train 1960man mentioned? Arno, you mentioned an overnight stay, which looks like a good option now. Is Lugano better to stay and visit, or Belliinzonia? Also, to understand you correctly, an intercity train goes from Lugano to Luzern in around 2 hours via the new bas tunnel?
Thanks again for all of the expert advice from each of you! You have helped clarify the Swiss train system.
