Welcome to a ride with our unique vintage train, «Karéttoget«, pulled by engine no. 17 «Caroline». A trip with the train is a journey back in time. Sit back and enjoy the travelling comfort of the 1880’s. It will give you a feel of what it was like to travel through the stunning farm landscape 140 years ago.
Our engine was built by R. Stephenson & Co. of Newcastle in 1861, while the carriages are built by Skabo of Norway and Atlas in Sweden between 1878 and 1889. They represent the earliest stage of development on Norwegian railways, when technology was imported from Britain to open up this vast, mountainous and sparsely populated country.
The train was restored in the period of 1989 to 1996. The locomotive is permitted to run at 50 km/h.
The 274-seat train (with all six carriages) has a two-class layout, and operates three trips annually.
We offer three services a year on specific dates in March, June and August. The journey runs from Hamar Station to Elverum with stops at stations along the way. In Elverum, there is a 1-3 hour break depending on what arrangements have been made.
