>> The issue seems to be the very short time at some transfer points. Is this practically possible? 7 mins walk etc.
The standard transfer times in the Swiss Timetable are achievable under normal circumstances - they take account of the size of the station, distance involved in transferring between platforms etc.
If you prefer, you can modify the transfer times by using advanced search in the Swiss Timetable.
>> We will actually be going to Meirengen from Wengen.
In this case, your timetable search will be Wengen to Brig or Andermatt via Meiringen, and you can put in how long you want to stopover at Meiringen. The fastest route is to Brig.
Then for the second day, Brig to St Moritz via Andermatt; or Andermatt to St Moritz, depending on where you spend the night. To travel on the Glacier Express, choose a connection designated GEX in the timetable. Reservations are compulsory.
In Brig, the Glacier Express platforms are outside the main station. You just walk out into the street adjacent to Platform 1, from where you will see the 3 Glacier Express platforms across the road (Platforms 11, 12 and 14).
