Map of Norway train lines

The Norway rail map shows all the railway stations and lines of Norway trains. This train map of Norway will allow you to easily travel by train in showing the major rail routes and high speed rail routes of Norway in Northern Europe. The Norway rail map is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.

The Norwegian railway system comprises 4,087 km of 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) (standard gauge) track of which 2,622 km is electrified and 242 km double track as you can see in Norway rail map. There are 696 tunnels and 2760 bridges. Jernbaneverket is a state owned agency which builds and maintains all railway tracks, while other companies operate them. These companies include Norges Statsbaner, NSB Anbud, CargoNet, Flytoget, Hector Rail, Tågåkeriet and Ofotbanen. Norway is a member of the International Union of Railways (UIC). The UIC Country Code for Norway is 76. The first railway in Norway was Hovedbanen between Oslo and Eidsvoll and opened in 1854. The main purpose of the railway was to freight lumber from Mjøsa to the capital, but also passenger traffic was offered. In the period between the 1860s and the 1880s Norway saw a boom of smaller railways being built, including isolated railways in Central and Western Norway.

The main Norway railway network consists of 4087 km of lines, of which 242 km is double track and 60 km high-speed rail (210 km/h) as its shown in Norway rail map. In addition there is 225 km of urban railways, of which 218 km is double track. In addition there are some industrial tracks and minor branch lines and some abandoned and heritage railways. The entire main network is 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) (standard gauge), as are the urban railways in Oslo and Bergen. Of the operational railways in Norway, only the Trondheim Tramway has a different gauge, the meter gauge, 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in). Some heritage railways, though, operate with various kinds of narrow gauge. Kirkenes-Bjørnevatnbanen used to be the northernmost railway in the world, but was in 2010 beaten by the Obskaya–Bovanenkovo Line in Russia. Still, Narvik is one of the northernmost towns in the world to have a railway connection, as the terminus for Ofotbanen. It connects to Kiruna, Sweden, but not to Bodø, the northern terminus of the Norwegian railway network. Kiruna is, however, connected to the Swedish railway network, which again is connected to the Norwegian network at the Swedish station of Charlottenberg, Storlien and Kornsjø.

2622 km (64%) of Norway railway network is electrified, all of it at 15 kV 16⅔ Hz AC with overhead wires as its mentioned in Norway rail map. The only sections that are not electrified are the lines north of Mjøsa, with the sole exception of Dovrebanen and the Ofotbanen. On non-electrified sections diesel locomotives are used. All of the urban railways use 750 V DC, via overhead wires on the tramways and via third-rail on the Oslo T-bane. Sweden is the only other country which Norway shares railway borders with. Sweden and Norway share gauge, loading gauge, signaling system, electric system, GSM-R and automatic trains stop systems. There are four border crossings: the Østfold Line–Norway/Vänern Line, the Kongsvinger Line–Värmland Line, the Meråker Line–Central Line and the Ofoten Line–Iron Ore Line. All crossings have electric traction on the Swedish side, but the Meråker Line lacks it on the Norwegian side. There have previously been operated train ferries to Denmark.
