Hi Gerry and welcome to MySwissAlps!
I think the Regional Pass Bernese Oberland would probably be best for you. It covers all your planned town trips: Bern, Luzern and most of the way to Montreux (and the rest of the way is discounted). Click here for a list and a map of the routes/attractions that are covered or partially covered by this pass.
In the end, I think, it is a choice between the 6 or 8 day Regional Pass Bernese Oberland and the 8 day Swiss Travel Pass.
To know for sure you need to create an itinerary with all your planned trips and compare prices for the passes and add any trips where you have to buy a ticket (full fare or a discounted fare).
We have our web page: How to choose the best rail pass, which has an Excel sheet to help you do the math. This is the only way to know for sure.
In the end, it may just be simpler to buy the Swiss Travel Pass - discounts are similar (but there are some better discounts with the Regional Pass Bernese Oberland - it just depends on if you plan on going to those during your trip (like the Jungfraujoch).
I'm pretty sure there are some new attractions in the area (or new methods of getting there at least) since your last time in the Bernese Oberland. For a list of activities available there click here.
