Dombås was connected by rail in 1913 by the Eidsvol-Dombåsbanen.
It is situated 343 km north from Oslo, capital of Norway. In 1921 the line
was extended to Støren where it connected to the Rørosbanen.
In 1924 the Raumabanen between Dombås and Åndalsnes was opened
and from that day on the station is a junction between the Raumabanen and
Dovrebanen. The old station building (see pictures) was destroyed in 1940
and replaced by a new one in 1941.
Dombås is located at 659.3 meters above sealevel. In 1968 the
Dovrebanen was electrified. The Raumabanen remains to be a dieseldriven
Recent years saw some interesting changes. The Di3 locomotives that hauled
both the passenger and freight trains to Åndalsnes were put out of service.
Also train sets (BM70, BM73 and BM93) were introduced.
