Trains in Norway: 

NSB - National railways

NSB is the name of the national railways of Norway and exploits all major line like Oslo-Stavanger, Oslo-Bergen and Oslo-Lillehammer-Trondheim-Bodo. 

The trains of the NSB are very convenient and punctual. Between major cities there aren't much trains running each day because of the large distances. For example between Oslo and Bergen, the two main cities, there are only app. 4-5 trains per day. 

If you travel from Trondheim to Bodo in the far north there are two trains a day, one day trains and one night train. 

The NSB does not run the Flam railway from Myrdal (on the Bergen-Oslo line) to Flam, this railway is privately owned.  

Mini Pris

The cheapest promo fare of the NSB is called Mini Pris. If you book early (very) cheap train tickets are available.
