First post :-)

 

Katterat Railway Station.

The Ofot line railway in northern Norway is quite spectacular. From Narvik harbour in the Ofot Fjord it climbs up the mountain, providing a transport ore for the vast iron mines of Kiruna, Sweden.

The world's largest freight trains pull the iron load down the mountain providing surplus electricity as the engines brake on their way down to Narvik. The surplus electricity is sufficient energy for the return trip up the mountain side.
