Hi lhollinger,

It should be any day now but we can't say when exactly. The timetable was finalized about 2 weeks ago; frankly I'm surprised they don't have it up yet!

The link to make the reservation is here, I would suggest checking back every day or two until it is released.

Thank you. I will check everyday, but how can I know when the reservations are available?

Click my link above and then click the link on that page under more information, titled: Golden Pass seat reservations.

You will just have to try to make the reservation every couple days until it works at this point. The only sector of the Golden Pass that we advise you to reserve is between Montreux and Zweisimmen (the panoramic trains). Normally at this time of year I would worry about reservations but around Christmas it could get busier.

Good news for everyone waiting to do their Golden Pass reservations for dates after 9 December 2017: the online reservation system has just been updated, so you can now do your reservations.

Nice. I checked yesterday and still no dice.
Must have been an overnight update - can't believe how long it took them after the timetable was released by SBB.

Yes, it probably was. I checked it yesterday too, and it still had not been updated.

It's a shame their error message for bookings for the 2017-18 timetable period was not more helpful - quite confusing for people new to the system.

I have just booked reservations on goldenpass site from new Zealand for travel 23 and 24 December 2017.

Their PR is abominable in my view. Only hope this doesn''t carry over to the actual service!
