ÅmÅJ was unsuccessful in its purchase of engines, which lead to some of its later problems. The railway had hoped to buy a type J engine from SJ, but SJ was unwilling to sell any. Engines 9 and 301, which were originally purchased during the construction phase, were planned to be used to for running trains; however, the inspection authority (Väg- och Vättenbyggnadsstyrelse VoV) did not pass the engines. Number 9 had been planned to make the run up to Kättilsbyn. Not having that engine available lead to a problem with how to get passengers the two kilometers there and back again to the mainline at Hallanda. Before the purchase of the railbus, a train would arrive in Hallanda, then, full of passengers, it would run up to Kättilsbyn and back again to then start on its journey again. Engines 14 and 15 were too large for the railway - they were too powerful and used too much coal: however, HNJ did not want to continue leasing the engines and ÅmÅJ needed something, so they had to buy them. ÅmÅJ bought several more appropriate engines, but was not able to use them, but instead had to use over dimensioned ones. Engine 9 was occasionally used on the mainline when the other engines were in for repair. ÅmÅJ had inquired with SJ about the possibility of leasing an engine (a type W) from them, but it was only around the time that ÅmÅJ filled for bankruptcy that SJ had any engines free, due to electrification, for lease. 

Kanske lite ironiska, men just vid ÅmÅJ:s konkurrens, SJ erbjöd ÅmÅJ möjligheten att hyra ett W-lok. På grund av elektrifiering, behövde SJ inte så många lok.
