Can Half Fare Cards be purchased in Murren?

Hi Everyone-
My husband and I are going on the Rick Steves Germany-Austria-Switzerland tour in a few weeks. The tour spends three nights in Murren. Does anyone know if it's possible to purchase a Half Fare Card at the station in Murren, or if not, where the closest location would be? I feel like the HFC is only going to be worth it for us if the weather cooperates and we're going to do a bunch of cable cars/lifts/trains to the summits; if it's going to be cloudy or raining the whole time we may not end up using it at all, so I'd like to hold off on purchasing until we're actually in-country. Thank you in advance for any advice!

You can buy the HFC at any ticket counter in Switzerland. Good thing to hold off purchasing until you see the weather. Presumably you want to visit the Jungfrau which is a good reason to purchase the HFC.
