The Åndalsnes train station, passengers to the left, freight to the right. The railway down the valley Romsdalen to Åndalsnes, Raumabanen, was opened in 1924. This 114 km side line from the main line between Oslo and Trondheim was never electrified. Most side lines have been found uneconomical and are closed down, but this one is a tourist attraction. Four passenger trains are leaving Åndalsnes every day and they claim that vegetation that may block the view from the train is removed every year. However, freight traffic seems to have terminated lately, just have a look at the picture.
