Hi bk629-

<<"You replied so quickly that I think Slowpoke may be a misnomer! ">>

You would change your mind if you were to follow me up or down the hills on "level" paths in Switzerland. ;-)

Mt. Titlis is evidently now wheelchair accessible, according to the two websites below and others. The first one says there are lifts at all the stations. The second one is a day tour, and the driver is not allowed to help load your wheelchair.

The Schilthorn: In answer to my written question, a representative wrote that at every flight of stairs, there is an elevator. The cable car is wheelchair friendly.

I am sure that is true. I have watched the loading processes at various stations on that route. You might miss a connection.. no big deal...but, the attendants are very helpful, and my guess is that they will work to make sure you get on in a timely fashion. They are quite nice.
