Hi Babyblue and welcome to MySwissAlps!
Certainly there are lots of rail pass options here! First, have a look at the popular rail pass options here.
The simplest option is to buy a Swiss Travel Pass for 8 days. This can be bought online (here) and printed at home before you leave (you also then have an electronic backup if you lose the pass).
This will then allow you to just hop on any train you wish and go right when you are in Switzerland. From Salzburg you will just need to have a ticket to the Swiss border (town of Buchs) then the Swiss Travel Pass covers the rest of the trip.
The only time you will need to buy tickets is for some mountain railways/gondolas (for example, the cable car from Murren to Schilthorn is 50% off with the Swiss Travel Pass). You can see a map for where the pass is valid and the major attractions it fully or partially covers here.
If you would like more details on what towns to visit and what you can do there click here.
For a list of popular attractions and hikes click here (including Mt. Rigi and several boats cruises)
I hope that gets you started! Let us know if you have further questions!
