NSB Bm 73 at Otta.
This shot is a result of a foot trip up the road of Rondarne and was caught by tele lense. All I can say is that the train was heading south bound after this stop. No folks, I did catch the unit number.. Date August 2004.

NSB Bm73 and Bm93.011
These two different trainsets displays not only the latest additions on passanger service on NSB. They also shows in their schemes the different services. The Bm 73 is assigned for Signum trains which are the trade mark for the former IC trains, while Agenda with its red and silver is the formal IR and regional trains.

NSB Bm 73.001.

NSB Bm 73.005
One of the most supricing things, a NSB Bm73 in MOra! The paint sceheme is at least for me and it is suprising to see a flag ship of NSB sitting at a flagstop of Morastrand. If this the new paint for Bm73.s it does a great job to make these sleak train sets to look more exclusive.
2008-04-08 Mora.

NSB Bm 73.008
The top of the bill of NSB passanger runs are the Signature runs, with the very sleak BM 73 trainsets. Yes, I did say sleak as they look like been ready to lauched to space while standing still. Here a foursome of images of BM 73008 on the lead as it has stopped at track 1 in Lillehammerin 12. June 2004.

NSB Bm 73.009
The high speed trainset of Bm 73.s and its sisters of Bm71 (Gardemoen shuttletrains) are not to be taken for anything else. These sleak trainsets with their tasteful schemes is the flagships on NSB. Here two trainsets Bm 73.009 and Bm 73.011 arrives at Dombås.

NSB Bm 73.009
The passanger runs are dominated by various train sets today, so is the case in Norway too. Here a high speed Signature train with Bm73.009 has made a stop to load and load of passangers. Right across the platform is the connecting train made of Bm93.14 and Bm93.04 to the coastal town of Åndalsnes.

NSB Bm 73.010
Most of the Signatur runs I saw in late summer of 2004 featured a single Bm 73 four unit trainsets. One of the units kept busy was Bm.73.010 which I saw in Dombås in the veryu last day of August. The unit was also cught the following day at track 2 in Trondheim. So far the rather futuristic looking unit with their matching paint scheme are in very good shape compared to some of SJ X2000 units. Bur one thing that is certain is the fact the rail business in Norway and also in rest of the Scandinavia is slow and this is also witnessed by the rather thin timetable of the NSB rail services.

NSB Bm 73.010
In 2005 the sleak Bm73.s are hauling most of the Signature runs on the Dovre line. The units are will get some respectable amount of milage as seen on this set of images of Bm 73.010. First it is caught as it is slows for the final stop for the day at the busy station of Trondheim on the 5th of June, next day it is caught at Oppdal north of the Dovre mountains seen in the background in 6th of June 2005, two days later the same trainset rolls to the main track of Hamar from Oslo and it will head out to Trondheim before calling the day.

NSB Bm 73.010.
The Bm73 EMU.s are the stars on passanger service on rails in Norway. Looking as noble as its reputation trainset 10, with bm 73.010 on lead slows down for the stop in Hamar in 28. of August 2006.

NSB Bm 73.011.
A south bound Regional train as the all long and medium distant trains are called in 2009, with a single Bm 73 trainset is stopping at Otta. Still there are quite a few Bm73.s in their original Signature paint scheme. Right now there are three paint schemes on these handsome trains. This purple, an earlier red, where the purple is replaced by red and the new red and silver with orange graphics. Otta 2009-06-15.

Sometimes you need a bit of luck to take some cool photos. Here we see in one shot four generations of trains or motive power. The old days is brought by the steam in form type 3a 271 sitting with its wooden cars, the 50.s and sixties by El11.2107 leading the preserved consist. To the right on latter pics a B7 generation trainset from the 1980.s with the star engine of the 1990.s El18 on the lead. The current star presenting 21. century Bm73.014. August 2006 in Otta.

NSB Bm 73.113.
It is about noon in Dombås and the tourist season is just a week away and this quiet exchange of passangers will be a thing of the past. The Signature train is Bm 73.014 which is getting readdy to tack on the last remaining grade to the pass at Hjerkinn before drifting down to Oppdal and from there the tripp. to Trondheim will be easy. While the Diesel train will load for a handful passengers to Åndalsnes. I guess two train sets are to be needed for this run the following week. Dombås 2008-06-24
