Welcome to the Old Voss Steam Railway Museum!

Take a trip back in time! Every Sunday from mid-June to mid-September you have the opportunity to experience an authentic steam locomotive on the Old Voss Steam Railway. The steam loco is a ten-wheeler built in 1913 as the first generation mountain locomotives for the Bergen Railway. Along with the locomotive you will find teak carriages from the 1920s and 30s.

The train runs the 18-kilometer-long stretch between Garnes station and Midttun station. Along the way you can experience a beautiful landscape when the train passes through the fjord areas, close to the sea and water on one side and steep mountainside on the other.

On several Sundays throughout the summer we offer experiences that add another dimensions to your trip. These are suited for the whole family! We have mysteries happening onboard provided by the theather company «Tidsreiser» and a day where you in addition to our steam train can travel with our newly restored diesel train from 1950, showing of veteran cars, and much more happening. You can enjoy a Sunday lunch on board the our classic dining car from 1937 (offered on select dates). The diner is lovingly restored by volunteers and is the last classic carriage that is still in regular traffic in Norway. Experience white tablecloths, white porcelain, waiters in uniforms and great dining experiences, and take a trip back to a bygone era! Bring your family or friends for lunch, have a romantic lunch for two or just by yourself. With us, you will find a nice atmosphere and good dining experiences in the dining car for every occasion. Pre-booking is recommended.

On selected occasions during the summer, we offer the Bergen Heritage Tour. This is a unique and exciting round trip through Bergen's most beautiful scenery on board a selection of beautifully restored heritage vehicles and vessels. Start and finish at Holbergskaien in Bergen.
