Landscape with railway tracks

From Hordaland, landscape with railway tracks

From Bergen, through the Hordaland is only one railway to Oslo. This is too difficult to build railways in terrain like here in Norway. Using the car is possibility to reach almost every point in Norway. There is many historical post roads, some of them only for walking, which was built many years ago. Some of them are really crazy roads. I have problem to imagine how the post was delivered. Now the old post roads are suitable to enjoy the landscape, driving or walking.

Railways through the mountains require a lot of tunnels and bridges. Railways in that terrain are expensive to build. For someone who want know more about this, I recommend to visit Flåm Railway museum. It perfectly shows how difficult was to build the little road from Flåm to Myrdal. In the era before dynamite, working by hands tools they build one meter of tunnel for one month. Crazy. Today it goes faster, but costs crazy money. On the picture below is just one (from many) place with amazing view which may enjoy the train passengers. Enjoy it also, on my picture. The mountain visible on the picture, it is Osterøy island.
