The Hoved Line ( ) is a railway line in Norway which runs between Oslomarker and Eidsvollmarker. The line is owned by the Norwegian National Rail Administration.


Built by Robert Stephenson, it was opened on 1 September 1854, having the English name Norwegian Trunk Railway, making it the oldest public railway line in Norway. The line was electrified in two portions, in 1927 and 1953. The Hoved Line was the main line between Oslo and Eidsvoll until 8 October 1998 when the more direct, double tracked high-speed Gardermo Line opened, taking most of the passenger traffic. The freight trains remain on the Hoved Line.

Today the old line between Oslo and Lillestrømmarker is used for freight traffic and commuter trains which serve the suburban stations in outer Oslo, Lørenskogmarker and Skedsmomarker. In addition overcrowded trains are not allowed to drive through the Romeriksportenmarker tunnel, and are occasionally diverted to the old line.

Passenger service on the old line between Lillestrøm and Eidsvoll past Jessheimmarker is only provided to Dalmarker.
