    Vossebanen, railway section between Voss and Bergen, the oldest part of the Bergen line. The line was started in 1875 and opened in 1883. The stretch was originally 106.7 km long, with 52 tunnels and 15 stops. After several line changes, the Vossebanen is today 86 km. The original stations of the track were designed by Balthazar Lange. Vossebanen is urban but also scenic.
    There is quite a lot of passenger trains but also a lot of freight traffic on the line.

    The stations
    (Note: the FLIRT trains you see in the picture have incorrect livery compared to 2021, many of the pictures are a few years old)

    If they ever add a norwegian route, pleeeeease DTG don't forget to add northern lights to the game. I know this sounds more easy than it is. But if a skandinavian country ever makes it into the TSW, aurora borealis is a must have

    Hello.

    This ia my first post.

    First of all, thank you for a splendid suggestion. Im from Norway, live in Bergen and work as a train conductor based in Bergen. Im working both on the local trains to Voss and Myrdal and on long distanse trains to Oslo.
    If DTG need informasjon about the route they can take a look on this channel on YouTube. RailCowGirl. She is a driver and collegue of me and have 305K followers. Here you have 100 of hours of 4k videos from the cab on the Bergen Line and Bergen - Voss.

    I like this suggestion. (Although not a fan of that modern BM75 train). Love the older locos in the pictures, landscape looks pretty awesome too and it'd be cool to see a new country in the game :)

    Very good and detailed suggestion! The scenery is awesome, my grandmother actually worked as a tour guid in the area. I prefer the older stock, I like the weird and unique look of the EL 16 in particular, it reminds me of the locos on the Flåmsbana, which I've always liked. All in all a fun new country and route.

    El 16 and El 17 have the same look but they are not related. El 16 is actualy a Swedish RC locomotive in disquise and EL 17 is buildt in Germany by Henchel.

    Excellent idea one of these locomotives can come as a reskin that's the BR187 since their first route is SKA. Speaking of the Norwegian signaling system is it identical to the Swedish system or not?

    Not it isnt. Not at all. There is some similarities but not much.
    For example. The more green lights in Sweeden the more more you have to reduce speed.
    In Norway however 2 green in the Main signal mean full track speed ahead.

    Thank you for telling me and I'm wondering if EBICAB 700 is used by the Norwegian Railway Network as the train safety system or not? Because Norwegian Railway train safety systems will require players to adopt them since it might work differently than the German PZB LZB Sifa UK AWS TPWS DSD France UK HS1 TVM 430 KVB & United States and Canada Alerter.

    The safty system used in Norwegian trains is called ATC. Automatic train control.
    You have 2 Main modes within the ATC system. DATC and FATC.
    DATC is only controling red signals and stop you ig u pass them, also the speed profile to toward a restricting signal.
    FATC is controlling signals but also the speed limit on the line.
    Norwegian trains also have SIFA.

    Thank you for telling me about more in-depth the Norwegian Railway train safety systems since players might get confused to how they work.

    Damn, all the EMUs in this suggestion look awesome. And I don't need to comment on the quality of Norwegian surroundings.
