On the level sections in the valley one used ordinary locomotives, but for the mountain section between Giswil and Meiringen rack locomotives were required. As some stretches of this section were quite flat, the mountain locomotives were designed in a way that they could also be temporarily operated without rack traction. The driving pinion was powered by a separate pair of cylinders and could therefore be switched on whenever it was necessary.
