Flåm Railway Scenic Train History

The Flåm Railway is one of the world’s steepest railways - 20 km long (12 mi) with a descent of 865 meters (2838 ft.) and a gradient of one in 18. 

At the same time, there are 20 tunnels with a total length of 6 km (4 mi). This is evidence of the most daring and skillful engineering in the history of Norwegian railways. To cope with the enormous change in height over such a short stretch, the track runs partly through tunnels that spiral in and out of the mountainside.

In order to ensure safety on this unusual stretch of track, all carriages are equipped with five different brakes, each of which can stop the whole train. The trains to and from Flåm connect at Myrdal with most day trains running between Oslo and Bergen. Ever since the opening of the line in 

1940, the wild and majestic nature has made the Flåm Railway one of the most popular tourist attractions in Norway.
