Hamar station, from the road side. This magnificent building was designed by Paul Due, and built in 1895. From around 1896 to 1912 the Norwegian Railway Museum was housed in an upstairs room. This is actually the third Hamar station, as the railway rapidly outgrew the earlier timber structures.
Hamar station from the trackside. For many years this was the break-of-gauge point where travellers from Oslo to Røros and Trondheim changed from standard gauge to 3 ft 6 in gauge trains. The overnight trains to Trondheim included sleeping cars.
