After literally months of procrastination, I finally braved the melted sleepers and wired in the three isolating sections on my new little layout. Even better, I wired up the Morley controller and it worked! Inspection saloon was the first visitor, hauled by Farish 4MT. A few switches flicked and Union Mills 3F came in to retrieve the saloon. Of course, much more testing will have to be done before the ballasting starts!!

 :sorrysign:Just been for a trip on the Ofoten Railway from Narvik to Kiruna. When it was first built in 1902, it was the northernmost railway in the world. Some spectacular views of snow covered mountains and frozen lakes

The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

It or the Bodo line are on my todo list - the freight locos on the Narvik line are really impressive beasts as well which makes it tempting too.

Bodo at least you can enjoy in realtime video. Not sure its the longest video on youtube but its quite long.. and there are four seasons of it!

Cab Ride Norway : Trondheim - Bodø (Summer) Nordland Line

Narvik freight...

IORE 115/117 (LKAB, Sweden)


Only question I have is what does one do in Narvik having gotten there ?

Well Alan, in Narvik, we took a bus to a little village which was shut. Managed to spend the 3 hours until the bus home wandering around in the snow. Went for a Viking feast and saw the Northern Lights, then of to Kiruna. Slightly more to do there, but still involved tramping around in 6" of snow. Note to Bealman, Snow is white stuff that falls from the sky. The freight trains have 60 hoppers with 100 tonnes each. They use 2 locos, apparently the most powerful electric traction in the world, as the line has some impressive inclines.

Glad you enjoyed it, Malc, even if you did require a second mortgage for a beer :o

Sorry to hear that the village was shut, Malc. It happened to me on one of my trips to Tasmania - when we got there IT was shut.  :D

Sounds like Melksham down here. The only time it's not shut is when Trainwest is on  :o
