Q on Trains from Interlaken to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen?

Jump to last reply

For years I have ridden trains from Interlaken-Ost station to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen and these trains have always started out as one train which split into two trains at Zweilutschenen - half of the train trundling to Grindelwald and the other half rolling up to Lauterbrunnen. And in posts I often caution folks to be sure in Interlaken they are on the right part of the train that will split as at Zweilutschenen I often see folks scurrying from one train to the other after the conductor has told them they are on the wrong portion on the train and that the train will split, etc.

Recently however I read that trains to Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen from Interlaken-Ost are now separate trains and thus no longer split at Zweilutschenen. Yet a perusal of schedules seems to indicate that they are still one train that does split - so

Q - Does anyone have recent experience riding these trains that recalls whether their train split in Zweilutschenen or not - I like to keep up to date on trains in my favorite part of Switzerland so as not to give wrong advice.

Are trains to Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald now separate trains or are they still one train to Zweilutschenen that then splits with one half going up the Grindelwald valley and the other half trundling up the Lauterbrunnen valley?

Thanks for any info!
