Norwegian High Speed Rail
Author: SvenMolson

Norway's only true high speed rail is the FLYTOGET" connecting Oslo's Central Station with Oslo's principal airport Gardermoen.. 43km/26.7 miles.

19 minutes, Start to Stop.  Not 18 not 20 but 19. Images taken May 7, 2023.

Ha det bra,
Sven Molson

Thanks for pix.
"...Oslo's Central Station with Oslo's principal airport Gardermoen.. 43km/26.7 miles..."
The route must aspire to marathon fame - 42.195 kilometers (26.2 miles).

One intermediate stop, IIRC.
I would like to add that only every other departure actually terminates/originates at Oslo Central Station. The other trips run further west, but a bit slower than the Oslo Central to Oslo Airport segment.

Not a bad system. Interesting info on its Wikipedia page... Flytoget - Wikipedia
