Visited the chapel when on a cruise, quite unique, the only one of it's kind in Norway. Located next to the port and beside the train station building at the end of the Rauma line.
The railway carriage has been converted into a small chapel with a small altar in the centre. It was consecrated in June 2003.
The chapel is open all year round and well worth a visit.

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.
