The vintage railroad and station area with locomotive sheds and workshops is exciting for both young and old.
The railroad between Nora and Ervalla is Sweden’s first standard gauge railroad for passenger transportation. It was inaugurated with great celebration in 1856. The railroad came about on a private initiative and was constructed to transport iron, ore and coal to and from mines and foundries in the area. The lovely station building, which accommodates the tourist office, still has the waiting room with a ticket window. The Nora Ervalla railway and associated facilities are protected as an architectural monument.
Climb aboard for a journey packed with charm and history. Steam locomotives and railbuses depart from the station building according to the timetable on Saturdays (and some Fridays) from the beginning of July until the end of August. Return to a bygone age and take a trip to the quaint old station in Järle, or to the mining village of Pershyttan. Or why not explore both? There’s something for all ages to enjoy, along with some lovely spots to stop off for traditional Swedish fika (coffee and cake) at Järle station and in Pershyttan.

The old warehouse, opposite the station building, houses a little museum for train enthusiasts of all ages. The museum features steam locomotives, carriages, and fascinating memories from the railway. The museum is open May-September.
