    The Sørland Railway is the southern main line in Norway, and runs between Oslo and Stavanger. It is the simplest way to get to Drangedal, and to Brøsjø.

    The tilttrains were introduced on the Sørland line 1 nov 1999. Technically they are almost identical with the airport shuttletrains between Oslo S and the main airport Gardermoen. There are 16 of theese tilttrain sets trafficking the Bergen line, the main line between Oslo and Trondheim and the Sørland line, with serial no 73. Each set consists of 4 cars, no 1 has a drivers cabin and a comfort department for passangers, no 2 has passanger seats and a cafe serving hot and cold meals, no 3 is a passanger car with the conductors office and a small compartment for animals and no 4 has a drivers cabin, a play area and is specially equipped for disabled persons and families travelling with small children.

    Travel time from Stavanger to Neslandsvatn: appr. 5 hours, from Oslo: 2:42. There are three trains daily in both directions between Oslo and Stavanger, and 1 between Oslo and Kristiansand. The overnight train between Oslo and Stavanger, which is operated by El18 and "oldfashioned" cars, does not stop at Neslandsvatn any more :-(

    If you don't want to go by taxi, this is how you get around Drangedal. My brother is one of their drivers :-)

    Their website is in norwegian only.
