Thanks for joining us David!
Yes, that's the route. Although there's one more option: instead of doing Tirano to Milan by train you could take the Bernina Express bus for a scenic ride from Tirano to Lugano. Then, a train to Milan.
Which rail pass you need depends on the itinerary you'll decide on. If you have multiple days to complete this trip it's likely you will do day trips by trains or cableways from several towns en route. The Upper Engadine around St. Moritz is wonderful, although late April is not the best time as ski season is ending and many hiking trails will not be accessible yet because of snow. Chur is another option. It all depends on what you're interested in. Please see:
