"We would like to detour on that day up to Gruyere & Broc for chocolate & cheese. Which station do we detour from?"
The so called 'Golden Pass line' is (until next year) a full size BLS railway train from Interlaken to Zweisimmen, then a metre-gauge MOB (Montreux Oberland Bernois) railway train Zweisimmen - Montreux, via Montbovon
At Montbovon, the MOB railway meets the TPF (Transports Publics Fribourgeois) railway, which serves Gruyeres and Broc (change at Bulle for Broc Fabrique), so you need to get off the MOB train at Montbovon. Depending on which MOB train you get from Zweisimmen, the time between trains at Montbovon will be either 12 minutes or 23 minutes.
Coming back from Broc Fabrique, the TPF trains depart Broc Fabrique at xx.32 past each hour (change at Bulle) and then the Bulle - Montbovon trains depart Gruyeres at xx.59 past each hour; after the change back to MOB at Montbovon, you will arrive at Montreux at xx.13 past each hour (example: Broc Fabrique 15.32, Gruyeres 15.59, Montreux 17.13
Note that Broc Fabrique station is right at the chocolate factory (otherwise it wouldn't exist), but Gruyeres station is some distance from the town, but next to the cheese museum
