I forgot to mention that the instruction page on the "timetable" link is worth a bit of study.
In particular, the timetable will usually default to the fastest route.
So, from Zürich Airport to Interlaken, it will route you through Bern. And, for Interlaken to Montreux, on the Golden Pass route, the computer will try to send you through Bern instead of using the Golden Pass Route. Going through Bern or returning that way is a lot faster. And, a pleasant ride, even if it is not as scenic. To look at the Golden Pass Trains on the Golden Pass Route or regular trains on that same route, you would enter "Zweisimmen " in the "via" box.
To go through Luzern, use the advanced time table and put "Luzern" or "Lucerne" in the "via" box.
You can do that for a whole lot of "vias", but I usually break the trip up into smaller segments in those cases, and work my way along the route. Sometimes, it offers more options and , for me, it is clearer to do it in pieces.
I always keep that map handy while I'm doing it.
