When one is travelling with a train pass that has been created to be used exclusively by foreigners, it is only natural that one be prepared to prove, if requested, that one is indeed a foreigner. The passport is an important and valuable document, and I can think of no safer place to keep it than on one's own person, naturally in a secure spot. Whether one will actually be asked to show a passport is anybody's guess, as it is up to the discretion of the controller. In fact, if one is on a train for a short distance, you may not even see a controller. Some regional trains move with no controller, but people know they must have their pass or a valid ticket just in case one is or comes aboard. No ticket or pass equals a fine.
