There are two types of steam locomotives (25-025 and 33-037) manufactured in the beginning of 20th century still operating. They are dragging 6 old passenger wagons that are renovated after original plans from Vienna Railway Museum. All technical support and maintenance for museum trains is carried out by mechanists from Railway Museum of Slovenia in Ljubljana.
