A journey above the historical town of Rjukan today in an equally historic cable car. Gaustatoppen reaches for the sky in the distance.

The Gaustabanen Railway, incredibly bored into Gausatatoppen. Constructed in the 1950's with NATO funding, the two tracks take you 850 metres into the mountain and then (at a 40 degree angle) up to 1800m.
