I worked out this question was linked to an earlier thread.
As such - I see that the OP wants to travel to Zermatt in order to catch the Glacier Express from Zermatt eastwards.
Going back to its inception in 1930, the 'geography' of the Glacier Express (GEX) route/service was never intended for passengers wanting to travel on it having arrived at one of its terminus points an hour or so before the GEX departs.
As such it is somewhat pointless travelling to Zermatt just to come straight back down the valley. If starting from Interlaken it is better to catch the eastbound train at Visp or Brig.
As regards the question, the Matterhorn is not visible properly from directly outside Zermatt station. You have to walk along the street to see it, and it might be in the clouds and invisible anyway.
