    Thank you for your question, Divakar.

    You would check schedules by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering the routes. Instead of purchasing regular tickets for these trains, however, I would recommend purchasing the 'Swiss Travel Pass'. You would purchase the Swiss Travel Pass here: http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html.

    The Swiss Travel Pass would cover each of the requested trains and enable you to receive a discount for the excursion to Jungfraujoch. From Montreux to Interlaken and Interlaken to Lucerne, you would be traveling along the 'GoldenPass' scenic route. A connection from Montreux to Interlaken on the GoldenPass would involve changing trains once in Zweisimmen along the way, and the trains from Montreux to Zweisimmen would just require reservations in addition to the Swiss Travel Pass.

    For travel with the Swiss Travel Pass, you would purchase reservations for one of the GoldenPass scenic trains from Montreux to Zweisimmen by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on our homepage, entering the cities, and indicating the type of rail pass you'll be traveling with when you're prompted (i.e. the Swiss Travel Pass). When you pull up the results of your search from Montreux to Zweisimmen, you will see trains labeled as 'Golden Pass Classic' and trains labeled as 'Golden Pass Panorama'. The coaches on the GoldenPass Classic trains have a vintage turn-of-the-century Belle Époque look, whereas the GoldenPass Panorama trains have a more modern look.

    The Swiss Travel Pass is then all you would need to cover you for the rest of the GoldenPass route from Zweisimmen to Interlaken and Interlaken to Lucerne (as well as your trains from Geneva to Montreux and Lucerne to Zurich).

    When you're in Interlaken, you would make the excursion up to Jungfraujoch. The Swiss Travel Pass would cover you as far as Grindelwald or Wengen on your way up to Jungfraujoch from Interlaken. To be covered for the segment between Grindelwald or Wengen and Jungfraujoch, you would purchase the 'Grindelwald or Wengen to Jungfraujoch for Swiss Travel Pass Holder' option of the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe' pass. You would purchase the 'Jungfraujoch Top of Europe' here: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/jungfraujoch/index.html.

    This pass would cover a round-trip between Grindelwald or Wengen and Jungfraujoch to be completed within a time frame of 24 hours. Grindelwald and Wengen ar located along 2 different routes between Interlaken and Jungfraujoch. Therefore, you might want to take one route on your way up and the other route on your way back down. For instance, if you ascend via Grindelwald, you might want to descend via Wengen.
