The Glacier Express route would indeed be covered by the Eurail Global Pass, except for seat reservation costs. Apart from the page mentioned by Rockoyster, you'll find this information at www.myswissalps.com/gl acierexpress/tickets. I'm not sure if this is the best route for your outlined base towns though. You can do it as day trip, but then you'll end up in St. Moritz or another town along the route which is far off from Grindelwald/Interlaken. There are many other options for scenid train journeys though though.
There's a beautiful way to travel from Zermatt (https://www.myswissalp s.com/zermatt) to Grindelwald/Interlaken for example, by using the Lötschberg RegioExpress trains that stop in Goppenstein and Kandersteg (fill out one of those as a via-station in the advanced SBB timetable at www.myswissalps.com/ti metable when planning your trip). It's a beautiful route crossing the mountains between the Valais (www.myswissalps.com/va lais) and the Bernese Oberland (www.myswissalps.com/be rneseoberland).
Within the Jungfrau region, pretty much each train trip is extremely scenic :-). Part of the route to Jungfraujoch should be included I think, at least as far as Kleine Scheidegg: www.myswissalps.com/ju ngfraujoch/gettingther e. You can also travel part of the Golden Pass line, either towards Zweisimmen/Montreux or to Lucerne: www.myswissalps.com/go ldenpass.
Note that Grindelwald and Interlaken are only 30 minutes apart from each other, so it doesn't necessarily make sense to stay in both towns. I'd say either one of them will work, and it will save you the hassle of packing/unpacking and checking in yet another hotel. Please find suggestions at https://www.myswissalp s.com/grindelwald/hote ls and https://www.myswissalp s.com/interlaken/hotel s.
