>> is the bus easily located outside the train station in Samedan
Yes, please see attached screen shots. I'm not sure which direction is served by the pictured bus stop, so just check if there is another bus stop across the road for your direction. There should be information at the bus stop about which buses stop there.
>> is the cost for the bus covered with my Swiss Travel Pass
>> the connection at Uznuch which is only three minutes from platform 1 to platform 3 - is this difficult to make?
The SBB timetable only generates connection times that are achievable, but this is indeed a tight connection, given that you have to get from platform 1 to platform 3 with luggage, and aren't familiar with the station.
It's a small station, and there is a ramp for transferring between platforms, so you won't have to deal with steps. You will go down the ramp on platform 1, under one set of tracks, then up the ramp for platforms 2 and 3. You should be OK - just be ready and waiting with your luggage at the train door shortly before the train pulls in to Uznach.
If you still are concerned with the short connection time, in the timetable you can click on Advanced search, then scroll down and change the Duration of transfer option from Standard transfer time to 10 minutes. Then the timetable will generate a new series of connections to get you from start to finish with longer transfer times.
By the way, Bernina Suot is a Stop on request station, so if you end up getting the train there, you will need to press a button inside the train to get the train to stop there. If you are getting the bus, you will probably also have to press the button for the Bernina Suot stop. There is a large display in the front of the bus showing upcoming stops, so you can press the button when the display shows that Bernina Suot is the next stop.
Stop on request is Halt auf Verlangen in German and Fermada sün dumonda in Romansch. (In that area, Fermada sün dumonda might be spelt slightly differently, as there are several varieties of Romansch.)
