There are a couple of photos of cranes at www.railfaneurope.net under http://www.railfaneurope.net/pix/ch/SBB_CFF_FFS/work/crane/pix.html and rescue trains at http://www.railfaneurope.net/pix/ch/SBB_CFF_FFS/work/rescue/pix.html

I do not see photos of a rescue train with a crane attached.

I found this entry for Hilfszug on Wikipedia. There is a section on the SBB
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilfszug_(Eisenbahn)

In case of heavier work, the SBB might request a private company like Vanoli or Sersa come to their assistance with one of their Kirov cranes

Here is a photo of a work train, including a crane used to build bridges. It may be SBB or belong to a private company. It does seem to have SBB markings:
