Train delays from Oslo Central Station will continue until repairs can be carried out in the early hours of Saturday, rail network operator Bane Nor has said.


A fault on a track between the National Theater and Oslo Central is affecting a number of lines, and the issue won't be rectified until the early hours of Saturday morning. Travellers have been asked to check how delays will affect their journeys. 

Bane Nor initially said a repair would take place Thursday, however this solution will still have affected traffic so the rail network operator has decided to wait until a full repair can be carried out. 

"A temporary repair of the rail break has been considered, but this will entail a need for reduced driving speed and will therefore not provide a better offer for passengers. We will therefore continue to run the train traffic as it is today," Bane Nor said in a press release. 

Due to the issues, the Oslo tunnel is running at reduced capacity. The reduced capacity has led to delays and cancellations on some services. 

The issues affect the R14, FLY1, RE10, R13, R12, F4, F5, RE11, L1, FLY2 and L2 lines. Among the services affected are the Oslo Airport Express Train and Bergen Line. You can see a full overview of the lines affected here

By law, passengers can claim a 25 percent refund on the ticket prices if they arrive at their stop more than 60 minutes late or 50 percent when at least 120 minutes late. 

You will be entitled to a refund even if you have yet to incur any extra expenses due to the issue and if you are rebooked onto another train or taken by a replacement bus service. 


Additionally, as long as there isn't a strike or extreme weather event causing the delay (or something deemed beyond the control of Bane Nor, which operates rail infrastructure), you can also request to have any additional expenses covered in relation to the delay.

This can be done in cases when the train company has been unable to fund alternative transport. You will need to keep the receipts of these expenses, and they must be within reasonable limits.
