Oslo Railways & Trams

Oslo Sentralstasjon

Oslo originally had two stations, East & West: - Oslo Østbanestasjon (1873) and Oslo Vestbanestasjon (1872). They were connected by a tunnel in 1980 and an enlarged Sentralstasjon was created in 1989 on the site of the Østbanestasjon, retaining the original frontage for a shopping centre alongside the new Sentralstasjon building.

Oslo Trams

Düwag/Strømmen Articulated Trams - Class SL79

40 six-axle trams of type SL79, numbered 101-140. These are single-articulated, and operate in one direction only. They were delivered in two batches, the first batch, with 25 trams, started arriving in 1982, the second batch of 15 trams arrived in 1989. The two batches are fairly similar, but with different interiors, and the rear door of the second batch is double. The first ten trams were produced by Düwag of Germany, the rest were produced by ABB at Strømmen, east of Oslo. The trams are 22.18 metres long, 2.50 metres wide, 3.41 metres tall and weigh 32.8 tons. The tram can take 163 passengers, 71 of which are seated.

Ansaldo/Firema Trams - Class SL95

32 eight-axle trams of type SL95, numbered 141-172 and delivered in 1998-2006. These are three-section, double-ended, partly low-floor trams. They can therefore operate on the Ullevål line to Rikshospitalet which does not have a turning circle. However, the large turning radius and heavy weight of the tram makes it unsuitable for some of the lines to Majorstuen, which have poor tracks and sharp turns. The SL95s were delivered by the Italian company Ansaldo/Firema, now Ansaldobreda. The SL95 is 33.12 metres long, 2.6 metres wide, 3.62 metres tall and weighs 64.98 tons. The tram has a capacity for 212 passengers, 88 of which are seated.
