Two types of steam locomotives (25-025 and 33-037) manufactured in the beginning of the 20th century are still operating. They drag 6 old passenger-wagons that have been renovated after the original plans from the Vienna Railway Museum. All technical support and maintenance for the museum trains is carried out by mechanists from the Railway Museum of Slovenia in Ljubljana. The ride includes conductors, with old customs in old costumes, railway guards and friendly service personnel who take care of the drinks and food on the way.
The stunning views and distinctive features of the railway are the 6,339-metre long Bohinj Tunnel under the 1,498 meter high Mount Kobla and the Solkan Bridge, with its 85-metre wide stone arch high above the Soča River.
