Church on rail. Welcome to the first and only train chapel in Norway - probably also the only one in the world - which has stopped by the platform of the end station of the Rauma Line andalsnes. This old and venerable railway carriage was a gift...more

This is a lovely site to see, but it is not something that will take more than 15 minutes to see unless you want to attend a service. It is incredibly unique and free to visit.

A unique type of church/Chapel in a railway carriage, a nice quit place to think about higher things. If at the station pop in and have. Look.

You will never see somesort of church anywhere else. The railcar is divided in two sections; one as some sort of general community "hall", and one section as "church" with a special made, railwaythemed, altar. For a village where there is nothingelse to be found...More

This review is principally about the train travel to Andalsnes from the north-south main line. I did not see the train chapel at that time. It must not have been built yet. I discovered this line for train trekking in Western Norway just on purpose...More

For us it was something different… a chapel inside a Bogie… seats were the seats how you have in a train. supposedly it’s the only train chapel in Norway. It’s just besides the rail station of Andalsnes. You can make a quick visit.

Immediately adjacent to the cruise ship berth and railway station, there is a railway carriage in which there is a small chapel complete with altar, font and stained glass window. It usually opens in the afternoons (in winter at any rate) and is well worth...More
