Referring to the closed thread www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/golden-pass-line-buy-ticket-online
We plan to take Interlaken OST Montreux Golden Pass Line. This will require us to change the trains at Zweisimmen. The plan is to take Train#4065 at 09:08 from Interlaken OST and then connectingTrain#D3115 from Zweisimmen at 10:25. This has Panaroma Coach.
We will have Swiss Travel Pass, which means we do not need to buy train tickets. But we would like to make seat reservations on #D3115 1st Class. We are looking at webpage www.goldenpassline.ch/ en/reservation-procedure-for-the-goldenpass-line/ for making seat reservations. The price is CHF 8 per seat.
1. We would have 2nd class Swiss Travel Pass. This obviously won't be valid for 1st class travel on #D3115. Is an upgrade possible to 1st class only for #D3115 possible? Cost? Where and how?
2. The webpage www.goldenpassline.ch/ en/goldenpass-panoramic-2/ mentions "One of the two types of panoramic trains offers a very special attraction, eight VIP seats situated at the front of the train. The view from here is even more beautiful than the one that the driver has, as he has to keep an eye on the railway track". While looking to reserve seats on #D3115, I did not see any option of VIP seats - Just 1st and 2nd class. How can we know, which trains (timing?) will have these VIP seats? and where can these be reserved?
