Nordvestfyenske Jernbane (Railway of Northwest Funen, abbreviated OMB for "Odense–Middelfart–Bogense") was a Danish railway from Odense to Middelfart via Brenderup, with a branch from Brenderup to Bogense.

The line was closed on March 31, 1966, simultaneously with the two other railways on northern Funen, NFJ and OKMJ. The tracks have been removed, although the line remains as a rail trail in a number of places, and remarkably, all station buildings remain in existence as of 2002.[2]
