Overview

Every Sunday from mid June to mid September you have the opportunity to travel on the Old Voss Steam Railway the 18 km from Garnes to Midttun. The steam loco is a ten-wheeler built in 1913 as the first generation mountain locomotives for the Bergen Railway. Along with the locomotive you will find shiny wooden coaches built in the same period. Throughout the summer we offer special arrangments, offering something for the whole family!

A range of trains and train lore. Great historical perspective. Having just ridden on the train from Voss the previous day made it impactful.
