When you say "take Glacier Express to Zermatt" do you mean from Chur or St Moritz? You could take a train from Zurich to either of those place to pick up the GEX.
If you took the train from Zurich to Chur in time to catch the GEX on 18th then a 3-day Swiss Travel Pass (www.myswissalps.com/on edaytravelpass/details) would work best for you I'd say.
Use the Swiss Train Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to work out timings. The Glacier Express is denoted GEX on the timetable Chur to Zermatt via Andermatt.
From Zermatt back to Zurich if you travel via Kandersteg to Interlaken. And from Interlaken to Zurich via Luzern you will then travel first to Spiez on the Regio-Express Lötschberger train over the traditional, more than 100 year old mountain route, giving you a wonderful view along the impressive peaks and down into the Rhone Valley. From Spiez you will follow the Golden Pass Line (www.myswissalps.com/go ldenpass) as far as Luzern.
The conventional wisdom regarding a pass is to advise that you work your way through “How to choose the best travel pass” (www.myswissalps.com/tr ain/ticketspasses/prac tical/chooserailpass) but in this case I think the Swiss Travel Pass is the answer you'll get.
