>> Instead they are routing trains and buses through Wimmis.
The trains from Speiz to Zweisimmen and on to Montreux normally go through Wimmis anyway - it's not a different route.
The only difference during construction is that you will get off the train at Wimmis station and get on a bus. The bus will deliver you to Zweisimmen station, from where you will continue your journey by train. The bus trip will take about 45 minutes. I imagine people's luggage will be loaded into the luggage compartment under the bus.
The SBB timetable has been updated to include the replacement bus sector, so if you do a timetable search for your travel date, you will see clear details of your route, transfer points and timing. I expect the whole thing will be very well organised. (In case you don't already know, you will need to put "via Zweisimmen" into your timetable search to avoid generating the faster routes via Visp or Bern instead of the slower Golden Pass route.)
