>> Would like to use pass for panaromic rides like Golden Pass Line, Glacier Express ... will consider ... just go on a region train and hopping off when the views look good.
Nine times out of ten, the best views will be between stations, not at stations, so that idea probably isn't as good as it sounds ;-) Many stops on the Glacier Express route are also quite remote.
I would recommend you do a bit of research and plan your stops ahead of time.
For the Glacier Express route, two places to consider getting off at are Oberalppass (the highest point of the route) and Versam-Safien (where you can walk down to the River Rhein). Getting off at those two places will add 2 hours to your journey, as there is an hour between trains. I would only recommend getting off at these two places if you are not travelling with luggage though.
Before getting off, make sure you know when the next train will be along.
If you are interested in seeing photos of the Oberalppass, and the Rhein at Versam-Safien, you can see them here. Those taken at Versam-Safien are near the bottom of the page.
