I have figured out how to travel from Lyon to Gruyeres. Purchase SCNF ticket to Geneva and Swiss rail ticket from Geneva to Gruyeres.
Leaving Switzerland, it looks like I purchase Swiss rail ticket from Gruyeres to last stop in Switzerland (Martigny) and then purchase SCNF ticket from there to Chamonix.
My understanding is that there are no (limited?) reserved seats on the Swiss trains. Is that correct?
From Martigny to Chamonix, there is a train change in Vallorcine with a 5 minute transfer period. Is that train station small enough that we can move our luggage from train to train in the allotted time? If not, we will have to wait for the next train. If we miss the connection, do we need to exchange tickets for the next train or just use existing tickets?
I've spent way too much time trying to figure out our train travel. Hopefully I am about there.
