A journey back in Norwegian history

The year is 1924 and construction of the Flåm Railway had finally begun. The work of building the 20-kilometre-long railway from Flåm to Myrdal was not easy: 20 tunnels, totalling 5,692 metres were to be constructed – 18 of these by hand! Constructing the railway took more than fifteen years and it took nearly seventy years from planning to completing the work. In 1940, the railway was ready to operate traffic.
