On all the Swiss 'scenic routes', all trains run on the same tracks. Modern marketing methods are employed to make a bit more money out of tourists, but I can assure you that with 58 years experience of Swiss trains, 'ordinary trains' are a perfectly good way of seeing Switzerland.
As Lucas has already mentioned, on 'normal' trains in Switzerland there is no need to reserve seats.
by the way Glacier Express sets have 6 cars, 2 1st class, one bar, 3 2nd class
