Me asking a question instead of answering one!

I will be using an Interrail Switzerland Pass, and I want to go from Zurich - Milan on EC313.

Is Chiasso the final station of validity of the pass, so I’d buy Chiasso - Milan?

Similarly, if I take EC53 from Bern - Milan instead, I’d have to buy a ticket Brig - Milan?

Chiasso is the border point yes. On Bern - Milan Domodossola is the border point, you can also take Domodossola - Locarno trains with the One-country pass ! :)

Reservations are optional and probably not possible until the border.

As you probably know regional train tickets are cheaper than EC ones.

Thank you. I want to make progress, so I'll stay onboard the EC. It's only 20 

Even though the pass says it's not valid beyond Switzerland, it's valid to Domodossola?

All Swiss tickets/subscriptions are valid until Domodossola. The railway is operated by BLS and SBB. They're also valid on the Centovalli railway : Domodossola - Locarno.

Here is the validity map :

Thanks for the advice. Pass + ticket from Chiasso accepted without problem.

Breakfasting aboard the EC to Milan, with the added benefit of more scenery, thanks to the closed Gottard Tunnel.
