Photographer's Note

Flåm railway (Flåmsbana in Norwegian) is a branch line which connects Bergen railway to Sognefjord. Within the distance of 20 km the line descends from Myrdal at 866 m above sea level to Flåm at sea level. 5.5% maximum gradient is exceptionally steep for a normal gauge adhesion railway. Flåm railway was opened in 1940. Nowadays it is third-most visited tourist attraction in Norway according to Wikipedia.

But why Norwegians try to hide these trains with forest green livery? (I'm glad that the Swiss prefer red.)
