The famous Flåm Railway in Autumn colors and afternoon sun. October is on us and the autumn colors are everywhere.
Today we’re going down from Myrdal to Flåm on the afternoon departure leaving at 1545.
The Flåm Railway is a 20.4km long line that goes from Flåm at sea level by the Aurland fjord and up the mountain to Myrdal station at 866m above sea level. Myrdal is the connection station for the Flåm Railway and the Bergen Line. The Flåm Railway is the steepest adhesion normal gauge railway in Northern Europe with it’s gradient of 55‰ (1:18/5.5%) gradient. Because of the steep gradient and sharp curves with a readious of 130m the speed is limted to 30km/h down and 40km/h up. Some sections are even limited to 20km/h.
I’ve added sideviews from both sides on the way down to Flåm.
