During summer there is guiding on this train, so it is very nice for tourists, but unfortunately there is a lot of woods near the train tracks so the view has been somewhat limited, there has been some initiative to remove some parts to better the view at the most spectacular places.

The most beautiful train journey. It waits for the passengers coming from Oslo and Trondheim at Dombas. A trip on the Rauma Railway offers passengers a unique opportunity to experience one of Norway’s most spectacular natural regions - everything from mountainsides, valley, river, bridges, horseshoe tunnels and national parks with live commentary and small book of descriptions. It is 1hr... More

Really enjoyed this journey, lovely scenery. You can book your seat but do buy early so you can get a window seat. There is a really good commentary along the way and the train will slow down so you can take photographs at particular sites. Andalsnes is quiet town and is a stop off for cruise ships so it can...

We took the very pleasant 90 minute journey fromn Dombas to Andalsnes. We were lucky enough to get perfect sunny weather and the scenery was fantastic so much so that the journey seemed to go by very quickly. Would definitely recommend this train journey.

If you are coming to Norway and wanting to experience some exceptional scenery on a train, this is the one to do! We did this and the Flåmsbana (Flåm Railway) during our EU Rail Pass travels through Europe and can definitely say the scenery and views on here far surpass that of the better-known southerner. Best of all, it's free... More

About 1h journey by train, the first part was absolutely amazing! Maybe better than the railway from Oslo to Bergen and Myrdal-flam too . The final part in the dombas area maybe is not so wonderful. By the way a fantastic journey! I really appreciate the laptop free to use in Andalsnes station !!! The train chapel is nice too

A great way to see the scenic fjords and valleys around this very pretty area. We had a coach ride up the mountain to Rauma then caught the train back to Andalesnes a very pleasant way to spend the morning and we were very lucky it was not raining according to our guide as it rains 265 days a year...

I have taken this journey several times, during my guiding for the Cruise Ships. Great views espically of Trollvegen / Troll Wall. But, during the winter season the train does not stop/slow down at the wall & bridge. This is an extra 5 minutes, which the NSB cuts out during the winter season. Otherwise great service from the NSB staff... More
