RhB carried a total of 9.8 million passengers on its 384km metre-gauge network in 2013, but freight volumes fell by 14.1% year-on-year as the railway was hit by declining demand for timber.

Despite these difficulties, operating revenues reached SFr 127.6m ($US 144.9m), the highest is RhB's 125-year history, with Ebit of SFr 394,000. RhB received a total of SFr 162m in subsidies from federal and cantonal sources in 2013.

Investment in the network, including infrastructure maintenance and renewal of rolling stock, totalled SFr 192m.
