The service is provided using El 18 locomotives with WLAB2 and B7 cars on the electrified lines in Southern Norway, while the service on Nordlandsbanen is provided using Di 4 engines with B5 cars. All night trains offer both sleeper cars with closed apartments with one or two beds in addition to regular sitting cars with individual seats in an open configuration.
