Was going to do that, yep. Any idea how long before a journey the tickets go live online, Dave? Cheers

Two months, it seems.

There are tricksy ways to book tickets with Deutsche Bahn as well six months. For instance, you can book from a place called Singen to Geneva for €34.90 with DB, and just not use the Singen to Zurich bit. However, that is liable to be more expensive, so I wouldn't bother.

If you are coming in from Austria or Germany, you can and should book it six months out. If you are only looking for a domestic Swiss train, chances are it'll make sense to wait until 2 months out.

Are those German tickets fixed to a service or can you grab any train?

Fixed to a particular service, unless you pay the full price, which is madly expensive. The cheaper Austrian ones are train specific too, as are the cheap Swiss ones.

There are no cheap tickets that aren't train specific, tbh. If you are booking a train to get coming off a flight, add a few hours to be safe, or you'll be paying a fortune if you miss the one booked.
