My wife and I are traveling to Switzerland the first week of May. We are planning to purchase 8-day Swiss Travel Passes to cover our transportation during that time. One leg of our journey takes us from Montreux to Lauterbrunnen, so we'd like to take the Golden Pass train line and enjoy the scenery. However, I'm very confused by the variety of info online about making reservations for this trip. Hopefully someone here can help.
1. When I look at any of the various sites that show timetables for travel from Montreux to Interlaken, I see a handful of itineraries offered with various transfer and times, but nothing to indicate which (if any) of them is the Golden Pass train. Are GP train schedules and tickets found elsewhere, or are these all GP trains, or is there a way to know which one to select?
2. Do we need reservations for taking the GP? Do we need to pay extra if we have Swiss Travel passes?
3. The front-facing VIP seats look incredible. Is it possible to reserve them, and if so, what's the procedure?
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
