Wonder Wednesday

As a bit of a rail fan, taking the Oslo to Bergen railway during my visit to Norway was a definite highlight.  We didn’t go all the way to Bergen, shunting off at Myrdal to take the even more famous Flåm railway line, one of the steepest regular rail lines in the world, dropping 866m over about 20km in length.  As you might expect, it is a visually stunning rail line, nestled in the mountains and full of gorges and rivers and waterfalls.  We traveled during the late summer and it was gorgeous, and I imagined it would be absolutely stunning to also see in the snow.

And now I know!  Here’s a cab-forward view of the line, taking the route from the bottom to the top, in full, 4k glory, filmed by one of the operators:

And if that’s not enough, her channel has a multitude of videos from all along the Oslo to Bergen line, in all seasons, including a continuous stream (but not live) to leave on in the background and ‘look out the window’ at every now and again, while chatting with fellow rail enthusiasts.  Lovely!
