History
Opened 1862

Ådalsbruk Station (Norwegian: Ådalsbruk stasjon) was a train station on the Røros Line in Norway from 1862 to 1972.

It was opened in 1862 as Løken, renamed Aadalsbrug in 1881 to correspond with the nearby village.[1] Both were named after the iron works Aadals Brug Jernstøberi og Mek. Værksted.[2] The spelling was modernized to Ådalsbruk in 1921.[1]

From 1972 the station was no longer manned.[1]
