I think if you like you do have time to do the Glacier Express from Brig or Zermatt to Chur and then on to St. Moritz, stay there for a few days, then the Bernina Express line to Tirano? Just a thought.
If you click on my link above "SBB timetable" it will allow you to search for the train routes you want (Chur to Tirano or Zermatt to Chur) for example. As you move along the process it will show you prices and the option to buy the ticket on the website.
Depending on how many other train trips you do in Switzerland you may want to buy a Swiss rail pass that will completely or partially cover the Bernina Express and most other trains in Switzerland.
For example, the Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss half-fare card. The Swiss Travel Pass covers the Bernina Express completely except for the required seat reservations. The half-fare card, gives you 50% off the ticket cost excluding the seat reservations. Read our information page on how to choose the best rail pass.
If you are just planning on taking the Bernina Express (either the actual panoramic train or a regional train on the same route) you will probably find the cheapest option is buying just that ticket itself on the SBB website (through our timetable link) and not any of the Swiss rail passes.

Are you wanting to buy the package trips with the Bernina Express or are they simply getting in the way of you finding just the train tickets and timetable? I'm a little confused on that point. The packages would automatically have you on the panoramic train and not on the regional trains.
