Hi Vartika31 -

Lucas directed you to the key link in MySwissAlps, which describes the route, differently from what you have stated.

Perhaps a way to make it more clear is to say that the Golden Pass Route is a set of tracks. Trains with different names run on different sections of the tracks.

From Luzern to Interlaken Ost, the train is the Luzern Interlaken Express. It is a narrow gauge line. From Interlaken Ost you continue via Spiez to Zweisimmen. At Zweisimmen, you change trains for the very scenic descent to the the shores of Lake Geneva at Montreux (not Lausanne.) In this last section, panoramic cars and other specialized cars are offered on some trains. These include special trains in which the front car has a bow window at its forward end, and you sit at the very front. The driver ( engineer for us Americans) sits above you in a special compartment. I always enjoy the descent to Montreux from approximately Montbovon onwards. The ride through the vineyards on switchbacks is really beautiful.

And, yes, they do stop at Meiringen. There are not many lockers there, but here is the schedule of the left luggage office:
