Hi evans! While in Montreux, you could visit Chateau de Chillon and the town itself. A boat trip over Lake Geneva is an option too. As for further tips: Thun and Bern are nice towns to explore. You can visit lots of viewing points in the Jungfrau region during your stay in Interlaken, such as Kleine Scheidegg, Schilthorn, Männlichen, First, and so on. Do check webcams and images displayed at the valley stations: while it may be foggy in the valleys, there are chances of beautiful clear skies up in the mountains!

Your itinerary looks fine to me. Traveling times can be checked with the aid of the timetable. If you're planning a scenic train trip, such as the Golden Pass on day 3, try to travel with daylight; sunset is early (about 5 pm), especially in December.

As for a rail pass: a 4 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass is worth considering. You'd use free travel days on day 1, 3, 9 and 12 and profit from a 50% discount on the remaining days. A 15 day Swiss Saver Pass could be an option if you prefer flexibility in terms of free traveling, adapting your plans on the spot, not having to buy tickets for each trips, and so on. Which pass is the most economical solution, can only be calculated based on a detailed list of day trips.
