Hell Station was first built to service the railway line to Sweden. Meråkerbanen railway opened in 1882, and Hell Station was at that time located approx. 500 metres to the east (close to Hydro/Texaco Petrol Station). In 1902 the railway line to Levanger (50 km to the north) was constructed, and in 1905 further north to Sunnan (approx. 110 km from Hell). The construction of the railway line to the north involved crossing of the Stjørdal river, which meant that the station buildings from 1882 were inconveniently located. The new station building was built at the intersection of the two railway lines (north and east). In 1904 they demolished the old station building and rebuilt it at Sunnan where it served as Sunnan Station until the 1970´s. The buildings you see today are from 1902. Although the station now is shut down, most trains stop here (on signal). Tourists do find their way to HELL - all year round. Most people know what this means in English. The most famous feature is Hell railway station and, of course, the sign (in Norwegian) stating "Gods Expedition". All tourists take their photos posing below the wooden sign - with big smiles! Music is a key word for Hell. Every year (September) "Blues in Hell" is arranged at Hell Station. Well known musicians write songs about Hell - but probably not "our Hell"; Highway to Hell, Cold day in Hell, Road to Hell, 2000 miles to Hell, Right next door to Hell, Bat out of Hell, Heaven And Hell etc. If you are in Trondheim, leave your luggage at Trondheim Station and take the local train to Hell. Ticket Trondheim - Hell, and be sure, there is also a return ticket available.
