Thank you for those videos. It really helps me relax, and I just love the beautiful view and smooth ride! I love the quality and perfection of your videos! ❤💋

My favorite HinduCowGirl video so far...

I assume it would take 3 cameras to catch without excessive distortion a typical human's field of vision. I'd look to see this with a 180 to 240 degree field of view.

Do you commenters have some reason for not taking her at her word, i.e. she drives the trains & places the camera in the cab to record the trip?
Mikkel Varheim (2 months ago)
+Photographing With Carl Most likely the video is from either the NRK (Norwegian State Television) or the NSB (Norwegian State Railroads), or someone with permission from NSB to literally place the camera from the control room

How come he toots the horn every now and then?
Leo Lunde (12 days ago)
To warn off any animals or humans on the track. You can't hear the train coming but the horn is very effective.

This is great. The houses and buildings along the route; no sign of life, no lights, no smoke from the chimneys; no people, cars or trucks? The light at the end of each tunnel is so increadibly bright, and as soon as you enter the light, it's normal. Anyway, enjoyed the journey.
Dan Herbert (13 days ago)
I find your videos intoxicating! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful seat... your beautiful view. Thank you for paying attention to the windshield! I love to watch your videos while listening to my own favourite music on a separate device. I play the vid at low volume and my music at a higher volume. So your art and my favourite musician's art becomes a new art form on it's own. Thank you again for making these vids! So special!

"Hmm wonder how snowy it gets" - ffw to 23:01 *already no track* "yessssss"
David Mouser (24 days ago)
How far did that tunnel go? I was expecting a Balrog!
koiesbow (24 days ago)
So many and such long tunnels! Series of tunnels followed by butt loads of snow followed by more tunnels and snow.

This is the best incab view form a train session I've ever seen. I don't know why but I really find a sense of extreme satisfaction from watching someone just do their thing in this type of setting. Oddly it is satisfyingly relaxing LOL!!!!! I hope you do more like this. I can put this on loop and just lay down and snooze like a baby. Not that I am implying that it is boring, no no no. I just mean that I find a setting like this to be much like white noise, life going on, etc. Like listening to the wildlife do their thing while you're camping, this is what soothes me. I love it.
Rum Runner (27 days ago)
And for the record........... bad bad bad habit of mine I guess. I spent more attention on the overhead power lines through most of this trip. i tried so hard to ignore them, but ... I kept looking up, and there they were.I don't know why they have them directly over the track, but ... at least it does let you know where the track is going somewhat in advance. I would have LOVED to seen the outside cab view of the snow you were most likely plowing out to the sides like a boat cuts through water. I guess what I find peaceful is the fact that you can't see the track you're following, its' covered in snow. But it is there. And you just GO.
Maciek Powaga (28 days ago)
A wonderful winter. It must be strange to be impressed by the train on tracks that ... you can not see ;)))
J Hearn (28 days ago)
I think the Norwegians should take some of our immigrants. It looks mostly uninhabited there. Do you give benefits and free council accommodation? It’s a ‘must’ for the immigrants.
Mark Fjaagesund (28 days ago)
I am surprised the railway would let you bring your camera in the cab. Most railways won’t let you. It’s awesome you can do this while you work.

cool and soothing, but why are the tunnels different, even different in the same tunnel?
Robert Bradford (1 month ago)
So that was huge tunnel, @ 1 hour, any guesses on how many mi or km that was? My guess is, not knowing where this is exactly at, probably about 6 mi. Or 9.6 km, give or take Am I even close?
HinduCowGirl (1 month ago)
You are very close ;) 12,37km
Robert Bradford (1 month ago)
I have to say that the headlight or headlights on this are not very good, the ones on trains by my house are stupid bright, can see everything.
Robert Bradford (1 month ago)
+HinduCowGirl it is a safety device here and penalty for not having it so it can't get snow covered
Robert Bradford (1 month ago)
+HinduCowGirl no ours put out heat so they don't get snow covered, like auto defrost for headlights

The head lights get worse the more snow that is covering them ;)

A very hypnotic video indeed. I love how you start from the lower lying area where it looks to be raining to higher up in the hills/mountains where the snow is covering the rails.

Question: how fast is that electric train climbing into those mountains once it is up to speed?
HinduCowGirl (1 month ago)
Well, that depends on the grade doesn't it? ;) on the plateau the speed is 160kmh

Thanx for amazing upload. I just finished a 2 hour long walk on my walking machine in 34C heat. This video didn’t only keep me cool, but also put me in trance, so I walked and walked with no concept of time. I have never walked this long time. Not only was it good physically, but my mind got it’s fair share of wellbeing as well. Wow, I feel good now, relaxing with an ice cold beer😎. Important to rehydrate 😁 This kind of vids will be my partner on my walking sessions. I can recommend this.

But why are they Called Drivers? They dont steer avoid crashes and etc They maximum press brake and accelerate, especially nowadays everything is automatic right?
HinduCowGirl (2 months ago)
Yep, in the US we're called engineers .. in Germany lokführer, in Norway Lokfører, Fører = driver... so it depends on where you are in the world
Christian Andolini (2 months ago)
HinduCowGirl but you dont have to steer just adjust speed and press brake
HinduCowGirl (2 months ago)
No, the closest thing you get to automatic is cruise control. :)
What if someone stays on the pathways or crossing them? Its scary as I think of it
HinduCowGirl (2 months ago)
Well... I'd call those kind of people very stupid. ;)

If the current Indian government stays then such smooth and we'll maintained train system would be possible in the next 20-25 yrs considering the size of India. Well done Scandinavia , you are an example of good society.

Because they are on, and completely covered in snow? :)

Great video!!! I started watching it....for a while...feel asleep. Woke up and I was still on the train!!! Zipping along a nice pace. Feel asleep again, woke up and here we are again!! I love it!!! What a way to travel and it didn't cost me anything! Thank you for this wonderful video. I totally enjoyed the ride!!! One day I would like to ride the Bergin Line. In memory of a good Norwegian friend of mine since passed.

At 57:08 - Any chance of a derailment due to snowdrifts?
HinduCowGirl (2 months ago)
Nope :) but, if the temperature had been above zero and the snow had been heavy, we’d engage things quite differently. During such conditions the snow can end up being hard as concrete.

How does the driver safely stay on the track? I would be so worried about steering off the path and down the mountainside!
HinduCowGirl (2 months ago)
The train weighs 600 metric tons? Besides, you don’t need to steer a train, it follows the track due to a flange on the inside of the wheel :)

It scares me that the railway lines are completely covered by snow and their continuity is not apparent.

I'm sure you're right and I realized that too, when i saw the train moving fast in the snowy environment.

Fascinating :D I can assure you it would much, much more to derail it. :D

+HinduCowGirl , because it seems to me, who I am not accustomed to such weather conditions, that the train will be derailed.

Nice. Very relaxing. Transport and energy infrastructure always amazes me. The amount of work done sometimes decades or houndreth of years ago, spanning entire countries and continents. Utilized and maintained to keep civilization running, and at the same time with so big impact on environment. Thousends of killometers of tracks and roads, so many bridges and tunnels, millions of rail supports, etc. etc.
David Dryden (2 months ago)
A beautiful route. The scenery is awesome. Not to many electric locos fitted with ice breakers and snow plows. I bet this pass gets a bit dicey at certain times of the year. What is the grade and elevation you reach? Those tunnels are amazing. Great video. I'm a bit of a train sim player and this would be a cool route to drive...from the relative safety of my computer chair.
HinduCowGirl (2 months ago)
2.5% on this line and 4009ft above median seal level. Which is Finse Station.
