Eidsvoll is a railway station located at Eidsvoll in Akershus, Norway. The station is the terminal of both the Trunk Line, the Gardermoen Line, and the Dovre Line. Though the Dovre Line and the Trunk Line/Gardermoen Line practically are the same continual railway, there is a naming change at the station, thus making it a terminus for all three lines. The station served local trains to Kongsvinger and regional trains to Lillehammer and Skien. In the summer the paddle steamer Skibladner operates from the docks at the station.

History

The original station was amongst Norway's first railway and opened in 1854. It was built as the terminus of the Trunk Line and was about 300 meters (980 ft). When the new Gardermoen Line from Oslo via Oslo Airport, Gardermoen to Eidsvoll opened in 1998, a new station was built slightly northwards to allow it to serve both the Trunk Line and the Gardermoen Line.
