The NSB, Norges Statsbaner AS., known in English as Norwegian State Railways is a transport company, created in its present form by the Norwegian National Rail Administration through legislation on December 1, 1996, but then privatized on July 1, 2002, owned privately by Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications.

Operations of NSB include passenger trains, buses, and freight rail.

Rolling stock

During the 1990s NSB modernized their rolling stock, expanding their fleet of multiple units and retiring many of the traditional locomotive hauled trains. Most of the locomotives went to the freight company CargoNet AS, but the El18 and Di4 remain to pull passenger trains. Some of the new trains were plagued with troubles, in particular a brand new BM73 derailed (fortunately at low speed) at Nelaug in 2000 because of an axle breaking due to metal fatigue. As of 2005 however, these trains have been performing satisfactorily.

Locomotives

  • 2 Di2 class diesel shunters
  • 6 Di4 class diesel locomotives, used mostly on Nordlandsbanen.
  • 3 El17 class electric locomotives, now used for shunting. A further 6 El17s are run by Flåmsbana.
  • 22 El18 class electric locomotives, used on all main electrified lines.

Electric multiple units

  • 80 BM69 class 2-car or 3-car commuter trains, used around Oslo, Bergen and Arendal.
  • 16 BM70 class 4-car intercity (medium distance) trains, used around Oslo.
  • 36 BM72 class 4-car commuter trains, used around Oslo and Stavanger.
  • 16 BM73 class 4-car long-distance trains, used on Bergensbanen, Dovrebanen and Sørlandsbanen.
  • 6 BM73b class 4-car intercity version of the BM73 used on Østfoldbanen.
