Hi madetrois,

Your pass needs to be validated (filled out, and stamped by rail staff) before you board your first train in Switzerland. In your case you can do so on board the train from Paris, before you reach the border in Basel.

I'm sure you will like the trains! A trip report about your experiences would be very welcome!
