“Today’s modern trains barely make noise,” Bane Nor noted, warning Norwegians against the illegal crossing of the railway line on Easter.
Skiers often forget that it is not okay to cross the railway line. Bane Nor employees who control and maintain the railway’s infrastructure see that a lot.
“The train can arrive before you know it,” project manager Pål Buset at Bane Nor said.
In the old days, the train was robust and loud; you heard it from far away. Today’s modern trains barely make noise,” Buset explained.
“A bad idea”
In some places, it is reported that permanent residents cross the line because they know the timetable and feel they know when the train will arrive.
“It’s a bad idea. People must remember that there are occasional freight trains and work machines on the line. These do not follow the same timetable as regular passenger trains,” Buset warned.
If you are going to cross the line, it must take place at a level crossing or at a place where there is a road above or below the railway.
