Volvat T-Bane Station ca. 1955.
|Distance||3.4 km from Stortinget|
The underground station was located between Majorstuen and Borgen, and opened in 1939. The platform length was only large enough to accommodate two cars. When the Røa Line was upgraded to metro standard on 5 February 1995, it started bypassing Volvat. Finally, as of 7 April 1997 the station was taken out of service when the Kolsås Line trains were extended from two to three cars.
The station was named after the owner of the land nearby, pharmacist Harald Condrad Thaulow (1815-1881, who was the father of noted painter Frits Thaulow). He came from a small village in Denmark; Tavlov and simply reversed the letters in his last name.
