Setesdalsbanen is a narrow-gauge (1 mm) museum railway that runs on the 067 kilometer long, wild and scenic stretch between Grovane and Røyknes stations in Vennesla municipality, Vest-Agder county.

Since then, you have been able to experience a more vibrant museum, with over 100-year-old steam locomotives, stylish wooden carriages, venerable station buildings and the smell of coal.
