We wish to use Golden pass first class plus front panorama seats on final section into Montreux.

Depart Luzern 12.06.2018.

Rhb timetable shows depart 0906 to Interlaken Ost --Spiez--Zweissimmen---Montreux. arr 14.13.

SBB timetable does not show any 9.06departure

Which is correct?

Hi Johnelsy,

Are you sure you are checking the Rhb timetable? That is for the Bernina Express timetable and that area in general - not for the Golden Pass.

The Golden Pass timetable here: http://www.mob.ch/en/r eservation-procedure

and the SBB timetable here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable Both agree on the 09:08 departure on June 12, 2018 arriving in Montreux at 12:13.

The last section (Zweisimmen to Montreux has the 1st class carriages only. This train departs Zweisimmen at 10:25.

The times you mention above (departing Luzern at 9:06, transferring at Interlaken Ost, Spiez and Zweisimmen, and arriving at Montreux at 14:13) are correct. These connections also appear in the SBB timetable (screenshot attached).

Your connection at Zweisimmen, departing at 12:25, is the train with VIP seats in first class.

That's a departure from Interlaken Ost :-) I understand that John will be starting from Luzern.

Ah I read departing Interlaken 09:06 and it is departing to Interlaken at 09:06. Good catch!

John, always refer to the the SBB timetable (in my first) link for departure times.
If leaving from Lucerne you need to enter VIA Interlaken & VIA Zweisimmen and it gives you the correct departures for the Golden Pass route. It is 09:06 from LUCERNE.
