You're welcome Susan! Don't worry about the train, you just need to wait until 2 (perhaps 3) months before departure. We're in a transition period now because of the new timetable as of December 14. So trains may show up on some sites and not on others yet. Even if your train is listed, that does not mean you can already book seats for it if it's not within the booking window yet. Both Rail Europe and the Swiss Railways site list your train up to mid December but not for January yet. They will include the train in their schedules soon, and you can book it from 2-3 months before your trip.
This booking window is standard procedure for trains in Europe. There are exceptions for a few trains, which can be booked 4 months ahead of time, but 2-3 months is standard. I think 2 months applies to your train, but it might be 3 (so you can book it soon). Just wait a bit and it will be fine. Of course you're always welcome to get back here in case of questions!
