Can you see Varne from the railway line

by Mark_Lester Online Now May 15, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Hi,
we are getting the train from Gothenburg to Oslo, I see that the train goes ever so close to Varne, but looking at street view it seems you cant actually see the lake at any point.
No great shakes, it looks like a great ride in the border area, I just wanted to verify as if you do get a glimpse, even for a few seconds, it will be worth pressing our noses to the right side of the train and ticking it off. We're on quite a train journey, so saying "we saw western Europe's biggest lake", even for a few seconds, is worth adding to the list. If there are any other specific things, like some special church or anything really, please let me know.

Thanks.

    well yes and no, it's part of the route. though I guess for that first stage there isnt any canal works, but there sure is at Trollhättan, so by that stage it's certainly had work on it.
    And it was designed and partially overseen by our very own Thomas Telford,one of Britain's engineering deities!
