The kid is still welding 10 seconds before the train arrives. Is this to be expected from Norwegian engineering and construction?  Big grin
Slower traffic, keep right

Unfortunately, that's what is looks like . There are a few highway-tunnels that are closed due to cave-ins south of Oslo, (near KaiGywer's old hunting grounds) blamed on construction shortcuts. There are also talks of closing the undersea-tunnel to the North Cape-plateau for safety reasons. The director resposible for our highway construction has resigned.

Haha yeah. Gotta love the E18 problems. I drove through the tunnel up north last august. Really cool.

Yeah, it's by Norsk Hydro. It's to encourage kids to study engineering.

....and they are the people that make the cast aluminum bumpers, wheel rims etc. for your Audis, BMWs and VWs
They are also into oil-exploration, as in the North Sea. Latest I heard, they wanted to get into the
Alberta Oil Sands project

If I had a ton of money and a choice of shipwrights to build me a boat, I'd choose a Norwegian.

Well, considering they speak Norwegian, the locomotive is a Norwegian Di4, and the train cars of the B5 family....yeah, I'd say they're Norwegian  Smile I did see that miscoloration you call a flag though  duck
