What can you experience?
The old station building at Gundershogget is from Rørosbanen, and was built in 1920. At Gundershogget station you can also find the kiosk where they sell refreshments, our newspaper “Lommedalsbanen,” and postcards that can be posted at the railway’s own post office.
Gundershogget is the starting point for the tour path that gives the opportunity to combine the train ride with a pleasant walk through the nature in Lommedalen. For those who choose the train, the first stop is Bjørkåsen station, where crossing trains can meet, and various railway material is exhibited.
The station building at Bjørkåsen is from the old Oslo East railway station. Vensåsbakken was in its time (from 1915-1956) a much used ski jump where ski jumpers like Narve Bonna, Birger Ruud and Gunder Gundersen have jumped. The last name won the Kings Cup in the combined event here in 1953.
Smutterud is the end station at the southern end of the railway. This station building is also from Oslo East railway station.
At all the stations, and also along the railway line, some of our rolling stock is on display.
