Will we ever see, for example, the Glacier Express becoming an hourly
all-year round service, effectively replacing many/most of the other
trains on the route?
I think the GEX is an exception for several reasons

Brig - Chur by GEX takes 3:57, by IC8/IC3 only 3:34
this doesn't make it a very interesting connection

Hourly trains have to serve all the villages along the line, not only Andermatt.

Train consists on the rack sections are limited in length. Why should
you open the train for other passengers when you are already fully booked?

On sections, where the train can be longer, the GEX is combined with the
IR or RE.

But if you look at Golden Pass Panoramic, at the BEX and others, you'll=20
find them more and more fully integrated into the normal timetable.
