    There is already an almost complete photo album of all rolling stock on the net in Norway done by jernbane.net here:
    link.
    The only problem is that it is written in norwegian but that doesn't take away the pictures.

    This is a test of an idea that just dawned on me...
    A drawback; it will contain all kind of pictures from the photo gallery, not just roster shots.
    And it depends on others do the keywords correct.
    I will not be able to fill this with photos of all types as many are extinct.

    A littlebit on colours:
    Switchers NSB
    Green

    -----------
    Old red

    -----------
    New design or Lego

    ---------
    Sesam

    Locomotives NSB

    Green

    ---------
    Old design

    Intermidiate design

    No one ever thought of preserving them or they were canabalized when their service time was done thus leaving nothing to preserve but a shell? I guess when you retire in Norway, you really retire

    I still think the sesame street look-a-like engine is quite unusual. But as long as it delivers...

    Ohh well, there is a railway museum at Hamar. They do their job on preserving history. The fact that we have a steam locomotive and the correct carriages from 1861 in running order is a proof of that. About 2 % of the steamlocomotives that we had are preserved. They cut up a lot for scrap though. I think the museum people and the railway society are quite busy these days.

    There are a lot of dead links on this one but...
    There is a jubilee going on now: 150 year with railway in Norway.

    Are those class units Canadian-built?

    Hi,

    They are Bombardier Talent units, but most certainly not built in Canada but Germany:
