>> That was exactly the answer I was hoping for re the cogwheel trains at the start of each trip to avoid having to queue,but I'm sure that I have read on another thread that you need a ticket for cableways in order to get through the barriers. But there will be more time at the top so no doubt I will be able to get one then if needed.
When I went up to Pilatus on the cogwheel train in August last year, I had the Tell Pass, which provided a free trip, but I still had to present my pass at the ticket office in Alpnachstad in order to get a (free) ticket to get through the barriers.
There was a sign in the courtyard front of the Pilatus cogwheel station saying "Did you exchange your ticket?". So I assume anyone who already has a pass or ticket bought somewhere else has to present it at the Pilatus ticket office to get a ticket that can be read by the barriers.
