For the steam traction, the DFB has several furbished historic steam locomotives. Actually vehiclesof the former Visp-Zermatt Railway (VZ) and the former Furka-Oberalp Railway (FO) are running.

During summer season the DFB hires a diesel locomotive HGm4/4 and from the Matterhorn-Gotthard railway MGB), destined for the additional trains between Oberwald-Gletsch and for emergency service.
