>> is it possible to leave the bags at Kleine Scheidegg and pick them up after Jungfraujoch? Or do we just leave out staying in Grindelwald to make it easier with a child and just do the day trip based in Interlaken?
You can find out what baggage services are available at various stations here:
That shows Kleine Scheidegg station as having baggage services, but I'm not really sure whether that also includes left luggage. Hopefully someone else reading this will know, or you could contact them.
>> Is this the trip you were meaning to Austria? There seems to be short connection times - are the rails reasonably close and easily found?
Your link just brings up the online timetable without any details of your journey.
When setting standard transfer times, they take into account how far you will need to walk to get to your next connection - it's not random. If you are concerned about missing your connection, you can click on "Advanced search", then scroll down and change the "Duration of transfer" option from "Standard transfer time" to 10, 20 or 30 minutes. Then the timetable will generate a series of connections to get you from start to finish with longer transfer times.
>> Will have to consider 10 hours on a train with a 3 year old!!
Yes, I can well understand that! According to the SBB timetable, going from Interlaken Ost to Wien (Vienna) via München (Munich) would take even longer - 11 hours minimum with 5 changes, one of which involves a bus sector between Zürich and München.
Have you considered breaking your journey at somewhere like Innsbruck?
Some ÖBB (Austrian Railways) Railjet services have a children's cinema on board. Once you have decided on your connection Zürich-Wien, look it up in the ÖBB timetable, and you will get a bit more information about services/facilities available on the train.
