A sign only cache, please don't leave any tradeables.


Engerjordet is a former light rail station on the Holmenkoll Line in Oslo.
The station was taken into use after the other stations, that had opened in 1898. Halvor Emil Heyerdahl was chairman in the construction period of Holmenkolbanen, and he probably saw to that the trams would stop just outside his house in Heyerdahls vei 1, that was located between Ris and Slemdal. This station was gradually taken into use as an ordinary station, and given the name Engerjordet after a demerged section of Ris Farm.
The station had very few users, and was taken out of use in 1935.

There are tram stops nearby at N59 57.043 E10 41.680 (Slemdal) and N59 56.890 E10 42.280 (Ris).

Engerjordet from the south side:


Engerjordet stasjon var tidligere en stasjon på Holmenkollbanen, mellom Ris og Slemdal.
Stasjonen lå ved krysset mellom Heyerdahls vei og Slemdalsveien og ble sannsynligvis åpnet tidlig på 1900-tallet, senere enn de andre stasjonene på linjen.
Trolig var en viktig grunn til stasjonens opprettelse det faktum at ingeniør Halvor Emil Heyerdahl, mannen som Heyerdahls vei er oppkalt etter, selv bodde i Heyerdahls vei 1 og ønsket kort vei til nærmeste holdeplass. Stasjonen, som stort sett kun besto av en treplattform, ble nedlagt i 1935.
