As reported above: "Reservations are optional, but recommended for the Zweisimmen to Montreux sector"
This was in reply to someone's trip in late August.
1) My son and I are planning a trip that includes Montreux-Interlaken-Lucerne in **mid October**. Are reservations still recommended at that time of year? We will be continuing on to Zurich for a plane home. I've read the suggestions that upgrading to 1st class is a possibility if seats in 2nd class are full, something we would do. If still recommended, could we buy reservations for the Montreux-Zweisman leg the day before at Montreux?
2) We're planning to have a Swiss Travel Pass for this trip. However, we don't want to travel straight through from Montreux to Zurich. Can we exit the Golden Pass train at Interlaken and later at Lucerne to spend a night or two at each and then board the Golden Pass to continue the trip?
3) We'll be carrying small suitcases for the entire trip - any problems with that on the train?
Thanks for any help offered.
