Hi panamaguy. An up to date overview of Swiss rail passes can be found here
. Just click on a rail pass for a full page with details, downloadable validity network maps, purchase options and prices. Which pass is best, depends on your travel schedule. If you plan travel throughout the country, including longer train trips, and if you want to keep your travel scheme flexible, an 8 day Swiss Saver Pass
would be a good option.
Your itinerary should be composed based on your personal interests. Generally, I'd say that you could take the Golden Pass route as your base and plan overnight stays in a couple of towns. Lucerne and Interlaken would both deserve one or two days for their wonderful alpine surroundings. The forum and this overview
offer lots of day trip tips for these regions. You could add Montreux and/or Geneva for a cultural component. The timetable
helps you plan your trip. Hotels can be found below:
