Well it is Norway the land of more TESLA EVs pro rata to population than any other country. The train is electric powered by hydro energy The Model S is electric powered by hydro energy.

I've seen many train videos but never seen anything like this, it's amazing to watch. Norway surely is a beautiful country.

Where are the tracks? It's a snowmobile! :D
Thank you for posting this video. You cannot see the tracks because of thick snow at times. In England we would have ground to a halt with frozen points, etc. I have only been to beautiful Norway once and that was in summer a long time ago.

Really cool, love the scenery. It's somewhat hypnotic and put me to sleep once - not because it's boring, though. The speed that the train goes through the curves in the climb up to the highlands is remarkable. I've seen a lot of people who would be going slower than that in a car on a road that twisty. In the snow, definitely. Cool video!

Thanks for these videos. I'm from India and in my city, the temperature always stays around 24C - 28C. In summer (February to May), it might go upto 35C in a sunny day and in 'extreme' winter (December and January), it might go down to 18C at night. I never seen snow in real life. Norway is beautiful. I really want to visit someday..

I don’t know if it was asked before: which engine model did you conduct? An EL18 or CE119/EL19?
HinduCowGirl (6 days ago)
EL18 :)

I wonder if wheel slip is an issue, especially since the track looks like it has some gradient here and there?

What was the maximum speed?
Bud Blanke (14 days ago)
Thank you for taking us along, I really enjoyed the ride, especially as read in the comments NO MUSIC, but must ask a dumb question....Why even have an engineer in the cab since there isn't anything you could do to prevent a catastrophe even if you could see it coming?
Claystead (12 days ago)
Bud Blanke Slam the emergency brakes and a normal non-bullet train can stop at 600 meters or so. It will be hell on the passengers, but will in most conditions be enough to avoid any larger disasters like driving into a rockslide or something.
Bud Blanke (14 days ago)
Not impuning your ability but at the speeds that I've seen (60 to 80 mph) and with no better visibility than you have from the cab and the given the long stopping distances of a train under normal conditions. I just don't see how an engineer could possibly see a problem on the the track in time to avoid a collision
HinduCowGirl (14 days ago)
Why isn’t it anything I can do? :) Just curious why you drew that assumption :)

The wheel slip we hear, sounds like it makes the journey of these sections fun.

Starting at 46:00 we can see the train exiting the tunnel, into a super bright light. This might be the closest thing we can experience here, ofa near death/after life experience, well documented , of a tunnel, with super bright white light. IMHO it may be something like this, as our physical bodies take on spiritual bodies. watch those sections of exiting on speed .5 (half speed) the rest you can watch at speed 2. Really amazing video, which is why it has 1 million 281K views. in 1yr , 9 months.

The sad truth is, if this conditions happens in Germany no train will run. Cuntrys like Norway or Swizerland run their trains on every weather. In Germany wind and ice are taking down all trains.

we should just get our old steam locomotives wind and weather and snow on the rails are no problem for them "polarexpress " :D

Absolutely breathtaking! Who knew. ASMR by train. :) I can't help but think of a line from Arlo Guthrie's song, The City of New Orleans... "...and the sons of Pullman porters... And the sons of engineers. Ride their fathers' magic carpet made of steel. Mothers with their babes asleep, rocking to the gentle beat. And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel." This should count among the best videos on YouTube. Well done!

På Vossevangen der vil jeg bo, der vokser kløver over høje, der går hver ungkarl med blanke sko og med en sølverknappet trøje. Der danser piger med bånd i hår, de lange fletninger til jorden når. Ja, tro du mig, jeg siger dig, der er det fagert at leve! Og dér står hassel og birk og el, og dér står blåbær på lien, og dér står geden så højt på fjeld, og elven løber forbi 'en. På marken vokser den grønne løg, og hjorden vogtes af den vilde høg. Ja, tro du mig, jeg siger dig, der er det fagert at leve! Godt nytår og tak for det gamle!

How fast was this train going after Finse, it sure wasn’t crawling through the snow, 😂
HinduCowGirl (20 days ago)
Didn't faster than 100kmh, and reduced the speed to about 80kmh at those places where snow usually piles up :) Don't want the snow on the top of the roof pushing down the panto.
ianh (22 days ago)
These conditions would stop UK trains (yeah I know..tsk tsk!) ..so how does the Norway train run in snow, is it a technical thing?
HinduCowGirl (22 days ago)
1. Heated points on switches 2. Snow preparedness 3. Solid plows on the loco 4. Environmental experience :)
Ralph111417 (23 days ago)
Amazing. Like a Train Sim track straight from the mind of a lunatic! The permanent way is maintained to the very highest standards, which cannot be easy given the terrain and the weather. I really enjoyed that thank you!
Sulev-Madis Silber (23 days ago)
watching from estonia where some train lines are closing and most of them don't have power either... kind of sad fact sure, you can't really compare those countries, but that's still best type of long distance transport to me i also wonder if people sometimes use those narrow tunnels? a really dangerous thing to do
HinduCowGirl (23 days ago)
No these tunnels are so remote that there are very few people that ventures around in the area. And those who does hike around they're smart enough to keep out of the tunnels.

Is that train powered by overhead lines. ? Not only that,but, going around 45 to 50 miles an hyour. :-)

I'm amazed it is an electric line, the infrastructure to set that up must have been expensive. Well done Norway

I agree with everyone else. A good "no frills" video. Just the train, the snow and the countryside and those tunnels! No silly music or commentary. We can enjoy the ride in peace.

This seems like an enjoyable and satisfying job. How many years do I have to wait and people do I need to bribe to get it?
HinduCowGirl (1 month ago)
If just waiting and bribing was the way, then it would be easy :p hehehe Apply for academy. If qualifications are good then you're send off for a psychological evaluation. Pass that and you're off for a medical evaluation. Pass that and you're offered a slot at the academy. One year of studying, exams, simulations/real life true service trains with a coach and you're off to the company that hires you, where you will undergo more training and check outs on the rolling stock and line knowledge. Which is about another 3 - 6 months depending on the company you start working for. :)

Can somebody explain the horn policy? I surmised that exiting a long tunnel is cause for a horn blast, but there are quite a few that sounded for no reason that I could observe. Just curious!

Sometimes, there's just so much beauty in the world, I feel like a just can't take it.
Roger Furneaux (1 month ago)
Like many others I suppose, found this amazing video by accident...mesmorising! I would like to know how deep the snow gets, and whether the loco has any sort of snow plough on it. A speed indicator would also be instructive.
HinduCowGirl (1 month ago)
The snow can get pretty deep, but there is a rotary that goes between trains to clear the track. That is the machine you see waiting at Finse Station. Does not take long before the track starts to get packed again. The snow can get as deep as half way up the catenary. That is of course the worst case :) So during the winters like that, you're driving in a trench that can just fit the train. :)

By the length of those station platforms and how far forward you stopped to the waiting passengers it would have been nice if you could have shown the whole train at the beginning.

Thomas Schneider (1 month ago)
Absolutely like it. I reminds me of my Interrail tour back in 2001. On my way to England I took the overnight-train from Oslo to Bergen. In the middle of the night I awoke looking outside and thought "It's so bright and white out there! What is this?? Snow - WTF - it's August!!" The days before in Oslo it had nearly 30°C. Do not underestimate this pass!
HinduCowGirl (1 month ago)
Yes I did, as with all the other videos on my channel :D
Thomas Schneider (1 month ago)
I've just read your channel description. Did you drive that train yourself?? O_o P.S.: thanks for your quick response. P.P.S: I'm now determined to revisit that line again next year combined with a hiking trip over the pass!
HinduCowGirl (1 month ago)
Never, ever, underestimate the pass :) it will kill you if unprepared... if you’re outside, that is :) safest place to be is in the train :)
