>> Actually the one ticket from Samidan to Innsbruck is 94CHF. But Bucks to Innsbruck is 43CHF & Samedan to Bucks ( w/o travel pass) is 27CHF Total 70CHF??.
The fare from Samedan to Buchs SG is CHF 54.00. The fare you quoted is the half-price fare. So the price of separate tickets Samedan to Buchs SG and Buchs SG to Innsbruck is CHF 97, slightly more than the through ticket.
It might help with the spelling if you know that "Buchs" is pronounced similarly to "Books" (although technically the "ch" sounds in German don't have an exact equivalent in English).
Enjoy your trip to Innsbruck - that is a very scenic ride!
If you go from Samedan to Buchs SG via Chur, you will go over part of the Glacier Express route, including the Landwasser Viadukt (sit on the left).
If you go via Landquart instead, you will also have a scenic ride, along what used to be called the Engadin Star route, although you will also go through the Vereina Tunnel for 20 minutes. Sit on the right until the Vereina Tunnel, then on the left for the best views from Klosters onwards. I have posted some photos of this trip on the following page if you are interested:

Then the route through the mountains between Bludenz and Innsbruck, the Arlberg Line, is also very scenic. From memory, I think the best views are on the right.
