Hi Bill Jones,
Your UK senior rail card could be applied to the cost of the ticket when bought in the UK....check with your local travel/train office. Typically in Switzerland, the rail tickets can only be discounted if you have a discount card from Switzerland, Germany or Austria.
You can try the online retailers here for help also travelling to Switzerland from the UK.
The Swiss Travel Pass only covers train travel within Switzerland. You can perhaps buy a ticket from your town in the UK to a border town in Switzerland and then use a Swiss Travel Pass onward from there. However, these passes usually only make sense if you are planning on multiple train trips will in Switzerland - which it sounds like you are not.
