New train roof at Katterat station

The operations manager for Museum Nord’s museums in Ofoten, Håvard, has been several trips up to Katterat station on the Ofotbanen railway to put a new roof on a train carriage that is at the station.

Håvard has removed the old sailcloth and roofing felt that had been on the train carriage, and then put new fresh rolling cardboard on the trot tables.

“It has been a fun project to replace a train roof, a little out of the ordinary” says Håvard, and sends a big thank you to Spordrift for transporting tools and scaffolding and to Bane NOR for lodging on his Katterat trips!
