Finse web cam


Recommended Posts

Good live stream video on the Oslo--Bergen line at Finse station, snow in August!

Train information can be obtained from (out of interest for any station in Europe!)

Just remember that Finse is one hour infront of UK time :)

Checking every now and then with the sound off - only to find the disappearing end of a Freightliner. Rattus norvegicus!

 

Anyway, here is the standing weather forecast for Finse:

 

Wet. Rain or snow expected later. Outlook wet.

Hi all,

 

Looking at the webcam, and satellite images of the location, what are the sheds over the mainline for? They don't seem to be tunnels...

 

cheers

I think it is a tunnel, entered through an avalanche shelter - but never having been to Finse, I may be wrong!

If you see a train approaching the tunnel isnt that long about 30meters at most, might be snow or maybe to lull noise of pulling away of heavy braking as the building on the left is a hotel?

 

Of interest Finse has no road access at all , everything for the hotel is unloaded off one of the passing container trains,,must try an see one day, it also houses a railway museum dedicated to the navvies who built the Bergen line.

Yes you're absolutely right, when it wasn't obscured by the weather, I watched an El18 pass through the tunnel and out the other end :O .

 

Blue sky today, and the platform puddles have almost dried up!

Freights on the Bergen line are generally electric hauled. AFAIK EL14s are still the main locos, certainly were in 2008 when I visited Bergen

I assume you are looking at Finse Tunnel, opened in 1993 to divert the railway under its most exposed and snow-prone section.
