How to train from Milan to Brig?

Jump to last reply

I'm confused about options for training from Milan to Brig(Switzerland). Hoping someone can help please.

Options seem to be:
SSB
site shows a train direct from Milan to Brig. Described as an International Train. It's an EC (Eurocity) train. If I had a Swiss Pass could I use it for this journey? I would have a spare day on Swiss Pass. Seems unlikely but thought I would ask. I think I saw somewhere on this forum that someone validated their Swiss Pass in Milan and caught a train to Brig and beyond. This fascinated me at the time because I didn't understand why this would be possible.

Trenitalia
site shows a train Milan to Brig. What are SMART fares? If I select ADULT/STANDARD I get a price. If I select SMART I get "ND". Also it seems it is not possible to get ticketless. Must be self-service machine or Home Delivery. And I must register. If I had a Swiss Pass could I select Global Pass on Trenitalia site for this journey?

So questions are:
Can Swiss Pass be used on SBB scheduled EuroCity train Milan to Brig?
Can Swiss Pass be validated at Milan?
What is Smart Fare?
What is ND? - is it "not available"
If I booked through Trenitalia could I use Global Pass selection for my Swiss Pass at Milan?

I think it's possible you will rejoice when I finally hit the road (start travelling) and cease these questions. Just wait for my trip report.
PS I have also posted these questions on Switzerland forum.
Thanks
