Hi again, I also have a beginner question about the train trip :) Does the train stop at the stations giving us some time to see around or does it just keep moving for 5-6 hours and we can only see around by window? In Goldenpass line for example, is it possible to hop off in Interlaken, wander around and then take the next to go Zweisimmen? Is this possible in all the lines? Thank you

Hi Begumozguler and welcome to MySwissAlps!

Trains will stop at some stations - you can find the connections/stops and train schedules here. If you are traveling on a Swiss travel Pass (or any normal train ticket) you can hop off and on as you wish. The only time you can't is if you have bought a "Supersaver" point to point ticket which is valid for a specific train and time.

Yes, if you don't make reservations on the Golden Pass panoramic train then you can hop on and off like any other train as mentioned above. You can take the panoramic train or a regular train on the Golden Pass route. I think between Interlaken and Montreux I would stay on the train and enjoy the scenery. Not too much need to hop off at the small towns and look around (unless you have something specific in mind).
