Dromtorp.jpg (115413 bytes)

A commuter train, consisting of 40 years old express coaches and hauled by electric loco No. 2205 of class El 16, passes an industrial area east of Ski on its way from Oslo to Sarpsborg.

Introduced in 1977, El 16 was derivated from the Swedish class Rc 4. Their first duties were in the prestigious expresses on the Bergen line and in the intercity trains between Oslo and Gothenburg. A suitable dual purpose loco, it served heavy freight trains as well as important passenger trains, and could be described as a “jack of all trades” until it was rivalled by the class El 18 in the late nineties.

Today, these locos are mainly withdrown from passenger services, and are mostly observed in the grey/black/yellow colours of CargoNet – the freight division of the Norwegian State Railways. Some locos have also been sold to the Swedish Company AB Tågkompaniet.

An electric loco of Norwegian State Railways class El 16 is hauling a peak hour regional train for Sarpsborg in the charming countryside 25 kilometres south of Oslo. Photographs who want to catch these locos in passenger trains are in a certain hurry, as the class El 16 mainly will be used in freight trains in the future.

A westbound freight train hauled by an electric loco of CargoNet class El 16 arrives at Voss station in July 2002. In the late nineties, the freight division of the Norwegian State Railways was outsourced, and a fleet of former multi-purpose locos were repainted to the new grey/black/yellow scheme of CargoNet.

holstad.jpg (144424 bytes)

Norwegian State Railways class El.16.2208 with an express train Oslo - Malmö/Copenhagen at Holstad 29 kilometres south of Oslo in springtime 1992. The 2 coaches behind the locomotive are Danish; then following 2 Swedish and 3 Norwegian coaches. The picture is historic for 3 reasons: 1. This part of the southern line between Oslo and the Swedish border was replaced by a new high-speed line 400 metres far north in 1994. 2. Nowadays, the few remaining daytime international trains consist of all-Swedish stock in blue Inter-Regio colours. 3. After the new Öresund connection Malmö - Copenhagen, all international trains from Oslo end up in Malmö.

racetr04.jpg (55141 bytes)

Norwegian State Railways electric locomotive of class El.16 with peak hour regional train for Sarpsborg 109 kilometres south of Oslo in the early afternoon of 23.06.2000. Probably, it is waiting for a crossing train, as this particular line is single-tracked.

The coach behind the locomotive once ranged among the most comfortable 2. class passenger coaches in Norway, with reclining, turnable seats and well space even for long legs. Today, however, its age (37 years) has removed this class from the best express trains to more humble duties.
