Description

Flåm Station (Norwegian: Flåm stasjon) is located at the village of Flåm in Aurland, Norway. The station marks the terminus for Flåm Line (Flåmsbana). The station is served by the tourist trains on the Flåm Line and operated by Vy.

History

The station opened on 1 August 1940 for freight, and the year after for passenger traffic. The station was built to allow transfer from ferries operating on Sognefjord to the Bergen Line at Myrdal Station. Marketing of the service was transferred to Flåm Utvikling in 1998; after this a new station building was opened, and the old station building converted to a railway museum. Flåm is one of Norway's largest tourist attractions, with an estimated half a million visitors annually. The Flåm Railway Documentation Centre provides information into the building of the Flåm Railway and the technical challenge facing this engineering work through the use of different exhibitions with text, image and sound.
