Hello. 2 years ago, I travelled from Zermatt to St. Moritz on a golden pass train. We hadn't pre booked this train and all 2nd. class seats were gone. We paid extra for first class but thought it was worth it because the trainwas special with huge panoramic windows. I thought all golden pass trains were the same, but this doesn't seem to be the case. In August, I plan to travel from Montreux to Interlaken Ost via zweisimmen, and decided to go first class again and book my seats well inadvance. It seems that neither leg on my trip will be on the panoramic trains at the time I,ve decided to travel, so wonder if I really need to make a reservation? We will have 2nd class swiss passes by then, but would upgrade if it was worth the extra expense. Please advise..
