The Flåm Line is a 20.2-kilometer (12.6 mi) long railway line between Myrdal and Flåm. The line’s elevation difference is 863 meters (2,831 ft); it has ten stations, twenty tunnels and one bridge. The maximum gradient is 5.5 precent (1:18). Because of its steep gradient and picturesque nature, the Flåm Line is now almost exclusively a tourist service and has become the third-most visited tourist attraction in Norway.
At Myrdal we caught a train to Voss and if we wanted to, further onto Bergen.
View of Flam from our cabin on the Magnifica. A small town of about 350 residents.
This is the view inside a carriage on the Flam Railway.
A couple of the passengers on the trip.
One of the magnificent views on the way up.
Another view but we often wondered how the houses were built and how the residents gain access where no visible means are obvious.
Huge waterfall along the way to the top of the railway line.
Kay finally made it to Myrdal some 800+ metres above Flam.
We then transferred to the train bound for Voss. Downhill all the way through some magnificent scenery and many snow resorts.
This is the Fleischer’s Hotel in Voss where we and about a thousand tourists had lunch. Voss has a population of about 15,000.

Huge waterfall just out of Voss on the bus trip back to Flam.
Amazing view of a valley on the return trip to Flam, which included a 12 and 5 km tunnel through solid granite.
Finally at the bottom of the valley in the above image, and almost back to Flam.
