Owner description: 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 from the Norwegian State Railway, and which through a long life has served busy people on travel, will now serve as a small house of God to give people silence and peace in an otherwise noisy world. The chapel was consecrated by bishop Odd Bondevik on the 10th of June 2003 in the presence of our royal couple, king Harald and queen Sonja.

Visited today as part of our P and O cruise. Absolutely lovely. Peaceful. Thought provoking. A miss if you are in this super little town

This was totally unexpected. A really delightful chapel in an old railway carriage. The alter is made from old railway sleepers with railway lines holding them together and a cross made from rails. It is very peaceful well maintained .It was right opposite our cruise ship. Well worth a visit even if you are not of a religious disposition.

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 a visit. The interior is quite charming and unusual and being so close to the railway station and just across a square from the Tourist Office it is an easy sight to see and, in my view, not to be missed.
