The Northern Norway Line (Norwegian: Nord-Norgebanen) is a proposed railway which would be built through Northern Norway. Several proposals have been launched; one is to connect from the Nordland Line at Fauske and continue onwards to Narvik, Tromsø and Harstad. The Troms Line (Norwegian: Tromsbanen) is a more limited proposal, which calls for a line between Narvik and Tromsø, but which would not connect to the rest of the railway network in Norway and instead the Swedish railway network via the Ofoten Line.[1] During the Second World War, the German occupation forces started building the Polar Line between Fauske and Narvik, but that was abandoned after the war.
