Hi Jacob, and welcome to MySwissAlps,

  1. You should read how to choose a rail pass.
  2. Yes, both stations do have locker storage.
  3. In November there's usually a lot of cable car maintenance going on. Dates vary from place to place.
  4. Please use the Swiss railways timetable. By default you get the fastest route.
  5. Here you'll find more information on scenic train trips. If you download the validity map on this page, you'll find a map of the scenic train routes on the second page.
  6. You will have to check there website. I don't think it's published yet.
  7. No, it isn't I believe.
  8. Please use the search box at the top of this page. There are various topics regarding this subject.
  9. I'm afraid I can't help you with this.
