    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Sujata,<br /><br />For the most part, yes, but there are some exceptions. The vast majority of trains covered by the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">Swiss Travel Pass</a> would also be covered by a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Select Pass</a>.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a> and the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a> are both valid to cover ticket costs for all the panoramic scenic trains.<br /><br />It would really just be a few mountain railways that are covered by the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a> but not a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Select Pass</a>. The only examples I can think of right off the top of my head are the Bernese Oberland Railway trains (Interlaken to Grindelwald, Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen, or Interlaken to Wilderswil), the ‘Schynige Platte Railway’ from Wilderswil to the Schynige Platte station, the 'Grütschalpbahn' (cable car) from Lauterbrunnen to Grütschalp, the 'Mürrenbahn' from Grütschalp to Mürren, the cog train from Alpnachstad to Pilatus Kulm (Mt Pilatus), the cable car between Pilatus Kulm and Fräkmüntegg, the gondola between Fräkmüntegg and Kriens, the 'Arth-Rigi Bahn' cog train from Arth Goldau to Rigi Kulm (Mt Rigi), the 'Vitznau-Rigi Bahn' cog train from Vitznau to Rigi Kulm.<br /><br />With that said, a <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Select Pass</a> would still enable travelers to receive discounts on each of these.<br /><br />As far as additional bonuses, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Eurail Select Pass</a> does not have the same as the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a>.<br /><br />If you ever wish to view the bonuses offered with a particular pass, you would click the 'Travel Bonuses' tab once you have accessed the page for that pass on <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/index.html" rel="nofollow">our website</a>.<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html</a>.<br /><br />For the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow">Swiss Travel Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html</a>.<br /><br />The <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/swiss-pass/index.html">Swiss Travel Pass</a> is unique from other rail passes in that it also covers buses, boats, and city transit networks. This pass will also provide for the best possible discounts on mountain railways and allows for entry to over 500 museums around <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/switzerland/index.html" rel="nofollow">Switzerland</a>.<br /><br />A <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-select-pass/index.html">Eurail Select Pass</a> that includes <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/switzerland/index.html" rel="nofollow">Switzerland</a> would not cover buses, boats, city transit networks, or museums..
