Remember that the timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) gives you the fastest way from A to B by default. That's often not the panoramic route. If you go to Lucas's links you'll find all details to plan your trip, including tips about finding the schedules in the timetable, links like the one Rockoyster posted, alternative trains, etc. Read all the tabs on those pages, especially the Route tab.
If you want to see the scenery you'd either take the panoramic train or a local train on the same route, both are equally fast in most cases. There is no faster way, unless you take another route. Lugano to Lucerne can be as quick as two hours, but then you spend the best part in tunnels, so no scenery.
