With a Swiss Half Fare Card, you can simply buy tickets shortly before boarding trains, boats, buses and cable cars. Tickets never sell out.
The only thing you need to be aware of is that if you plan to travel on the Glacier Express, Bernina Express or Gotthard Panorama Express, reservations are mandatory. They do sell out, but probably not in October, which is the start of the low season.
The Glacier Express and Gottard Panorama Express only run until 14 October 2018, before taking a break. When they aren't running, you can follow the same routes on regional trains though, and they don't require a reservation.
After 21 October 2018, many mountain transport operations will start closing down, either for the winter, or for 4-6 weeks of maintenance before the ski season starts. When in October are you travelling?
