Hi Mike. If the timetable comes up with a route, this is either the quickest or the cheapest one (as long as you don't specify that you want to travel via another railway station). So yes, if part of the Glacier Express is involved, you may use the route for your outbound trip. Please note that you should make seat reservations
in case you're actually travelling on a Glacier Express train. If a regular regional train is involved, you don't have to reserve seats.
Your Swiss Transfer Ticket is valid up to the Swiss-Italian border. At the map we link to on the Swiss Transfer Ticket detail page
(please refer to the header 'Swiss Transfer Ticket features') you'll find a map showing a detailed overview of the validity area. Most connections will run via Chiasso, up to which the Swiss Transfer Ticket is valid. For the small Italian leg of the route to Como, a separate ticket should be purchased.
