Switzerland - Golden Pass Questions

Jump to last reply

Hello there, I've been looking at the Golden Pass website and at the former posts here on the subject, but am still confused! I will be starting in Lausanne (in mid June, travelling solo, coming from a stint in Paris), and ending in Zurich, with a possible stop in Interlaken to stay a night up in the mountains somewhere (still trying to decide where!). Because I have so few stops, I have not opted to purchase a Swiss or Eurail pass. What is the difference between taking a "regular" train between those points and the Golden Pass train? If there is a price difference, do you think it's worth taking the Golden Pass instead (what is the benefit? besides the panoramic view, of course) With the Golden Pass, can one get off and on the train at various points? Also, in looking at the prices, I was further confused. Here is the site that lists rates: http://www.mob.ch/GPS/voyages/prix.asp? ligne=mob
It mentions what looks like two rates for a one way pass - one is designated 1/1, and the other 1/2 - does anyone know what this means? Also, none of the rates mention Luzern or Zurich as an ending point. Finally, I know that Europe and US differ on the use of the comma and the period in numbering...I'm not understanding how the prices are running here. Finally, any benefit to booking ahead in the US vs. just doing it upon arrival in Lausanne at the train station? Help!! Thank you endlessly in advance if you can clear this up for me.
