I booked VIP seats online for the Golden Pass from Zweisimmen to Montreux last year, on a service leaving Zweisimmen at 12:25. The reservation was issued to me immediately as a printable PDF. (You need to be travelling first class to reserve the VIP seats).
The view from the VIP seats, especially in the first row, is wonderful! It is like you are driving the train. The driver is actually seated on a level above the VIP seats. The VIP seats in the first row are numbered 81, 83, 87, 85. Seats 81 (on the left in the direction of travel) and 85 are corner seats, and leg room is slightly reduced. But you do have the advantage of being able to take photos through the side window as well as the front window. Photos taken through the front window will feature the windscreen wipers as well as the wonderful landscape!
I have attached a picture of the carriage layout from the Golden Pass reservation page, with seats 81, 83, 87 and 85 circled in red, and some photos I took from seat 81. As you can see, it was a winter trip.
