After  leaving Lofoten my next stop was Narvik; Sept. 23 2018. Many here in Norway actually say that Narvik is -not a very pretty city -to put it mildly.. 

But when I hear such things about a city -that's when it becomes real interesting to visit!!

The first I noticed was a part of the railway station where some old wagons rested on real old rails -and everyone knows by know how I feel about rails and trains.. So had a nice stroll along that area and shot what I could:

On my way home -Sep 2017 I again went through Sørumsand in hope to see the charming old steam loc ‘Tertitten’.. and was I lucky! 🙂 Just as I parked my car the train was about to go for one of it’s short trips around in the town -with a few people in lovely, old wagons.. all just for the fun of it of course. And the loc was steaming up and getting ready! A few more photos will come later too in the album:

Trains, stations and rails




I always hope to find one or of unusual, old or strange objects when I’m around walking or driving -in well known -or new places specially of course. When visiting Sørumsand I came across this fabulous old petrol pump inside the railways station area! It represent exactly what I’m talking about! 🙂 I could feel my excitement right way! -a lucky day ) and took a lot of shots.. but this one become my fav.. I even put it in 2 albums; where I usually put such Misc. objects -and in the Train & stations album.


Posted today; the first 2 images from the charming old railway station in Sørumsand, Norway. The grand, old steam loc & wagons ‘Tertitten’ is running there from time to time in the summers -as a public attraction. I will post photos of that train too later.. But I was happy to find also some of my fav subjects here too; rusty, almost hidden rails and station details from ole times!..
