>> We are going from Thun --> Beatenbucht (3-4 hours for the Bunker Fischbalmen tour) --> Gimmewald via public transportation. My best idea was to store our luggage at the Interlaken station lockers then take the bus (?) back to Beatenbucht.
Yes, leaving your luggage at Interlaken Ost station sounds like the best idea, as you will go through Interlaken Ost on your way to Gimmelwald after your Bunker Fischbalmen tour.
Are you getting a boat from Thun to Interlaken? If so, it will go to Interlaken West, from where you can get a train or bus to Interlaken Ost to deposit your luggage.
Bus 21 runs between Interlaken Ost station and Thun Station, with a stop at Beatenbucht. Services (until 28 October) are half hourly in each direction. Last direct bus service from Beatenbucht to Interlaken Ost leaves Beatenbucht at 18:32 (but check this for your specific travel date).
>> Also, you mentioned earlier that the Golden Pass panorama trains are labeled as "MOB PANORAMIC" or "MOB BELLE EPOQUE." I'm trying to reserver our seats (see attached) however the website doesn't indicate if it's a regular train vs panorama train? Is there any way to determine this, just want to make sure I'm reserving the right thing =).
Those descriptions can be found in the SBB (Swiss Railways) timetable.
All the services on the Golden Pass reservation website are official Golden Pass trains. The 4.25 pm train is a Belle Epoque train. The 5:05 pm is a panorama train. The previous panorama train is at 2.25pm. I haven't travelled on a Belle Epoque train, so I don't know what the windows are like. Hopefully someone else knows.
