>> Can you easily take luggage on the train to Jungfrau?
I agree with rockoyster - taking your luggage with you would seriously detract from the whole experience.
For a start, the carriages are smaller than normal trains, and are normally pretty full. You have to climb a few stairs to board. There is no accommodation on the Jungfraujoch, so the trains from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch are not designed to accommodate passenger luggage in the same way as other trains.
Secondly, once on top, you will probably want to walk through the Ice Palace and out onto the snow on the Plateau, as well as out onto the Sphinx viewing terrace. In the Ice Palace, you are walking on solid ice inside the glacier, and dragging a suitcase would be difficult to say the least. When you walk out onto the plateau, you have a slight uphill incline on the snow - also not advisable with a suitcase in tow. The floor surface of the Sphinx viewing area is a metal grid - also tricky with a suitcase.
I have attached some pictures showing the floor surface in the Ice Palace and Sphinx viewing area, as well as the slope out onto the snowy Plateau.
