I wish to travel from Geneva Airport to Wengen using the Swiss travel pass and incorporate the golden pass line. Arriving at 14.30 at Geneva, I having trouble in finding connection. Any help would be appreciated please.

Here is the timetable PDF from the electronic version of the famous century+ old Swiss 'Kursbuch' national timetable :

www.fahrplanfelder.ch/ fileadmin/fap_pdf_fiel ds/2018/120.pdf

The PDF covers Table 120, ie the MOB railway Montreux - Zweisimmen (and onward connection Interlaken), but as with all the Swiss 'Kursbuch' timetables it has the connections to major places at either end.

Your arrival in Geneva is quite late in the day to include the MOB in your journey - on pages 5 and 6 you will see what times trains leave Geneva Airport to connect with the MOB at Montreux.

As you can see there is a regional train from Montreux at 16.53, with connections leaving GE Airport at 15.02 or 15.20

The 16.53 from Montreux would get you (after a few changes of train) to Interlaken at 20.28

Hi Claire and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You can find all train schedules (as well as buses, boats cable cars etc) with the Swiss railways online timetable: https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable

You can enter Geneva to Wengen in the SBB timetable (and Via Montreux & Zweisimmen) and that will put you on the Golden Pass route. If you want to be on a panoramic car (available between Montreux and Zweisimmen) you'll want a train noted as MOB Panoramic on that section.
