o hold a Swiss travel pass and I had my reservation done for bernina. However my reservation is available as PDF version rather than the printed copy. Is it ok as I couldn’t manage to find a print station nearby ?

I’m pretty sure you can just show the inspector the reservation PDF displayed on you mobile device. From memory my reservation just looked like a letter.

You definitely require hard copy Swiss Travel Pass.

I wouldn't be concerned. If you can't print it just check in with staff before boarding the train. They'll either print it for you or tell you it is fine. I'm sure they just want to see the reservation for your seat and they can do that on your phone.
