>> Are regional trains faster than Panoramic trains?
Regional trains also travel on the panoramic routes, so what you probably mean is whether there are faster ways of getting from A to B than on a panoramic route.
The answer is yes :-)
The fastest routes for getting around in Switzerland (generally speaking) are fast because they go through the flatter parts of the country and/or take valley and tunnel routes, which is great for commuters.
However, if you are a tourist, you miss out on so much by choosing the fast routes over longer, more scenic ones. Scenic routes tackle the mountains and transport you through stunning scenery instead of zooming underneath it in a tunnel or detouring through the flatter parts of the country to avoid the mountains.
