The Korean State Railway (Kukch'ŏl) operates a wide variety of electric,diesel and steam locomotives,along with a variety of electric multiple unit passenger trains. Kukch'ŏl's motive power has been obtained from various sources.

Many steam locomotives were supplied by various communist countries in the 1950s,including the Soviet Union,Czechoslovakia,Hungary,Poland,Romania,and China.
The Toshiba DeRoI-class was a group of nine boxcab-style electric locomotives with regenerative braking and the capability for multiple-unit control manufactured by built by Toshiba in 1943-1944.

They were built for the Chosen Government Railway (Sentetsu),and after the partition of Korea were inherited by the Korean State Railway of North Korea,where they were known as the Chŏngiha class.
The DeRoNi-class was a group of four boxcab-style electric locomotives with regenerative braking and the capability for multiple-unit control manufactured by Hitachi in 1943-44,very similar to the Toshiba-built DeRoI and the Mitsubishi-built DeRoI-class locomotives.
The Mitsubishi DeRoI-class was a group of three boxcab-style electric locomotives with regenerative braking and the capability for multiple-unit control manufactured by Mitsubishi in 1946.
