But would Andermatt be a worthwhile destination for through trains
from Interlaken, Lucerne or Montreux?
Well, looking at travelling times, there isn't much that a Grimsel tunnel could improve. You can travel from Lucerne to Visp, changing in Berne, on standard gauge in 2:02

On the narrow gauge you need
0:30 my estimation for Merinigen - Oberwald
1:11 Luzern - Meiringen
1:13 Oberwald - Visp with a direct train
1:38 Oberwald - Visp with a regular Regio
0:32 Interlaken Ost - Meiringen with an IR
0:36 Oberwald - Andermatt

This gives an estimation for the following travelling times:
2:10 Luzern - Andermatt (today 1:35 via G�schenen)
4:00 Luzern - Zermatt (today 3:13 via LBT)
1:40 Interlaken - Andermatt (today 2:41 via LBT - GEX)
3:30 Interlaken - Zermatt (today 2:05 via LBT)
5:50 Interlaken - Davos (today 4:32 via NBS)
6:20 Interlaken - St. Moritz (today 5:09 via NBS
2:20 Interlaken - Visp (today 0:54 via LBT)
1:05 Interlaken - Oberwald (today 2:29 via LBT)
1:45 Interlaken - Fiesch (today 1:47 via LBT)
2:10 Bern - Interlaken - Oberwald (today 2:30 via LBT)
4:25 Interlaken - Chur (today 3:22 via NBS)

From this you can see that a Grimsel tunnel doesn't help to save time except Interlaken - Andermatt.
