I'm hoping you can give me some further advice to my post back in January regarding this train route. Slowpoke was fantastic enough to do a search for our particular day of travel on 25th April approx 9am & sent me screen shots with descriptions of what I am looking at to help decipher.
As our trip is now fast approaching we are sorting out some of these finer details. My wish is to have as least connections as possible & to travel in a panoramic carriage & if possible ViP up the front. When I go to this date & time what before showed as 1 change at Interlarken oast in a panoramic train now shows 2 changes... 1 incl a bus ride involved after only about 20 mins on the train( from Sarnen to Meiringen) or there was an option that went via Olten where a change is required. Can you please help me find the best for scenery & easiest route on the morning of 25th April.
Also, if we have a 2nd class swiss pass do you know how much it is to upgrade to the panoramic & or VIP carriage & if with the issues above & we can't do a panoramic train is it worth using our full swiss pass or just a 1/2 fare card be a better option. (I'm trying to decide on a 3 or 4 day combi pass)
Thanks for any advice that can be given as I had thought I had this sorted until now I see things have changed.
