Hi ruanc810 and wellcome on the forum

Mt. Titlis is above Engelberg which is in the greater Lucerne - www.luzern.com and Top Questions about Lucerne (TA Lucerne forum) and www.engelberg.ch - area while Jungfraujoch is above Interlaken/Grindelwald/Lauterbrunnen/Wengen. It is too far away to do Jungfraujoch from the Lucerne area or Mt. Titlis from the Jungfrau area - www.myjungfrau.ch - in my opinion.

Both mountains are glacier experiences. I would recommend you do one of them and an other peak in the relative area.

For passes you will need to do the maths. You can get the fares etc on www.sbb.ch/en and all information about railpasses on www.swisstravelsystem.ch (an excellent deal would be the Swiss Saver Flexi Pass two for one which you can find under specials)

Yes, your 12 year old will travel for free with a family card (free if you purchase any pass) as long as he travels together with you.

I hope this helps

My reason for suggesting Interlaken is that is an easy transport hub, and more choice of places to visit. Engelberg is at the end of a valley and every journey will involve an hours journey each way to Lucerne. Otherwise I think Pore has given all the answers.
