Nelaug Station ( ) is a railway station located at Nelaugmarker in Åmlimarker, Norwaymarker, north of the Nelaug Lake. The station functions as a meeting station of Sørland Line and Arendal Line, that latter which the station functions as terminal station for. Passengers from Oslomarker to Arendalmarker must change at Nelaug.

History

Since 1910 Nelaug was a stop for the (originally narrow gauged) Treungen Line that was opened to Åmli. In 1935 Sørlandsbanen was finished from Oslo to Nelaug. At the same time the southern part of the Treungen Line was converted to standard gauge. From 1935 to 1938 Arendal was the terminal station of the Sørland Line, just like Kragerø Station had been from 1927 to 1935. In 1938 the line from Nelaug to Kristiansand Stationmarker was opened.

The traffic on the northern section of the Treungen Line was closed in 1967. The entire community of Nelaug, including store and school, is built up around the train station.
