Many types of rolling stock are used on the Skarloey Railway.
These are usually brown, have a door on each side, and are used for carrying anything that must be protected from the weather.
These resemble goods vans with the addition of a small look out on the sides for the guard.
These resemble the coal wagons used by the North Western Railway, these trucks are not known to misbehave, or to even have faces. They are brown, and carry coal and tools (for the repair train).
Flatbeds are used to carry large bulky loads, such as statues, organs, engines, vehicles etc.
These are used to carry tall loads, to make them more stable or lower by placing the load in a dipped space between the bogies.
A host wagon is a type of truck designed to carry narrow gauge trucks over larger gauge track. When it is carrying a guard's van, it can be used as the first or last wagon in the train.

The V tipper wagons are probably the most used piece of rolling stock at the Blue Mountain Quarry. They are filled with slate which is then either tipped into a mill or transferred to standard gauge trucks.
A few art transporter wagons can be seen around the Blue Mountain Quarry.
They were used at the start of World War II when the government requisitioned Manod Quarry in order to hide valuable pieces of art underground. It is unknown what their purpose at the Blue Mountain Quarry is.
