Hi Ava T,
That's right, the Chocolate Train runs between May and September. However it is fairly easy to plan a combine trip to the chocolate factory and cheese factory on your own.
From Montreux, travel to Broc Fabrique by train. You will need to switch train twice, first in Montbovon then in Bulle. The chocolate factory is a short walk away from the station. When you're done, walk back to the station and take bus 260 to Gruyeres. The cheese factory is located close to the station. To return to Montreux, walk back to Gruyeres station and take a train to Montbovon, then switch to a train to Montreux.
You can check train schedules and find all train connections on the SBB timetable: www.myswissalps.com/timetable
You can also travel conveniently with a guided tour. You can find a list of options here: www.myswissalps.com/maisoncailler/packages
More information about the chocolate and cheese factories are available in the following links:
Hope this helps.
