History
Opened20 December 1900

HistoryEdit

The station was opened in 1900 as a station on the North Line between Grefsen and Røykenvik. In 1902 the extension from Jaren to Gjøvik was finished, and the line changed name to the Gjøvik Line. The branch line to Røykenvik too the name Røykenvik Line. The branch was abandoned in 1957.

The restaurant was taken over by Norsk Spisevognselskap on 15 January 1930, but was privatized again from 15 October 1944.[1]
