Vanessa Hi Lauren - I can't make it (wish I could!) - but have travelled through that area (couple of years ago now...'06/'07).
When I was there trains were infrequent and ran only between some major towns - but the bus system was really good (private minivans too) - I don't think you'll get value from a rail pass.
Had trouble finding out how to travel south from Montenegro to Albania as only private buses were running the route (which seem to have random pick-up/drop-off spots) - so I went the other way from Greece - Albania - Montenegro which somehow seemed better organised (i.e I found a way!). Things keep changing there though and if you have time then there's always a way!
Anyway that's my 2 cents worth...
Hope you have a great trip! :) Vanessa
