Well, with Switzerland it's always better to recheck directly with each railway company (e.g. http://www.interrail.eu/trains/railway-companies/swiss-railway-companies-discounted ), because with all those private companies rules keep changing depending pass type, period, etc. So when it's not SBB, then better to check directly in order to avoid misunderstanding

What do you mean by interesting? Rolling-stock?

Well, 610th indeed a kind of interesting, but TGV... nothing extraordinary, imho. At least for me way more fun was to try all the various stock from private railways (Rhaetian, Matterhorn Gotthard, SZU, FART and so on)

haha like the Thurbo who have no WC?

I dont know where are you from but I never drive on a TGV or ETR610. This will the first real Train ride in CH. (Just Wien - Zürich and arround the Bodensee.)

Before my first visit to Switzerland RABDe 500 seemed to me very interesting But when I came to Switzerland - I've managed to catch RABDe 500 between Bellingzona and Lugano and discovered it's very similar by look and feel to Pendolino, at last while you are inside.

ETR610 have same feel inside comparing to any other Pendolino-like train. While you inside - you don't see this long train nose.

Ok, then obviously you should try TGV. What I meant when said "nothing extraordinary" is that there are huge number of TGV trains around and it's pretty usual and ordinary rolling-stock for the region (esp. if compared to rc used by some private railways in Switzerland). On the other hand 610 is relatively new, so some would like to try it just in order to compare with the older ones.
To me "interesting rolling-stock" is either something unique to this country or something not widely used (i.e. existing in very limited number). So with this logic I myself would prefer a ride in 50 year old trainset and not some new Alstom/Stadler emu produced in hundreds and running in dozen countries in Europe

lol here in Vienna old Trains operate day by day. The were build 1978–1987. Even in CZ, SK, HU operate old Cars. Sorry the are just boring for me. And here in Austria no Alstom Trains and just the Westbahn use normal Gauge Stadler Trains.
