swiss trains -- baggage service questions

Jump to last reply

I know some of you have used the fastbaggage and the check-thru services, and I just wanted to ask a few questions based on your experience...

--We may use the airline check-thru service. We'd be arriving at Zurich at 1PM on a Saturday, and then going on to Luzern. According to the sbb table, if we land between 1 and 3PM, our bags will arrive in Luzern after 18:20. Is it generally the case that the bags will take that long? I expect we will arrive earlier than that, what are the chances that the luggage will as well?

--We're going to be taking the train from Luzern to Montreux on a Tuesday. We actually don't arrive in Montreux until after 8PM. I had planned to use the fast baggage service checking in, in Luzern before 9AM. The sbb chart says it will arrive in Montreux after 6PM. Now this seems odd, because the Montreux station baggage office CLOSES at 8PM. Why would they even say they can deliver it same day if you can't pick it up? I think I'd still like to use the service even if I have to get my bags the next morning, but I was curious at this. might they actually arrive earlier? if I arrived earlier would I have a chance to pick them up?

--finally, does anybody know if there are luggage lockers at the train station in Brienz? I'm searching the sbb site, but its obviously a small station, and I can't find it listed.

thanks!!
