railway line: Attentive motor tourists in Numedal will notice that there are train tracks all the way from Kongsberg to Rødberg but unfortunately the Numedalsbanen line no longer has passenger trains. The Kongsberg - Flesberg line has some freight trains (mainly timber), and the rail between Veggli and Rødberg is only used for recreation tourists by track bikes (tricycle). More information on
