I am travelling from Zurich to Geneva on 17 Feb 2020 with my 2 siblings. I will like to try the Golden Pass Route in between and will like to arrive Geneva on the same day before 5pm.
1) if we have luggages with us, will it be cumbersome to try all 3 trains from Lucerne to Montreux? as we need to change 3 trains in the intervals of only 6 minutes? ( Lucerne to Interlaken OST, Interlaken OST to Ziwesimmen and lastly from Ziwesimmen to Montreux). When we change platforms to go into another train, do we have to exit any gantries and re enter to the departing platforms?
2) If the above is ok, i will have to book separate tickets from Zurich HB to Lucerne? is the Lucerne platform same as the Golden Pass route platform Lucerne?
3) For Golden Pass route, i have to book separate tickets and will not be able to use the SBB website? as the SBB will only propose fast trains and not the scenic trains used in the Golden Pass?
Lastly, if I were to skip 1st 2 section of the Golden Pass route, how do i plan the train trips? from Zurich to ?? so that i can board only the last leg of the Golden Pass (Ziwesimmen to Montreux)
i tried some of the websites and links and found that its not easy to customise the booking to my trips.. any help or advice will be great.
