Kilde Wikipedia:
Hardangerbana eller Hardangerbanen (også kalt Eidebanen) var en 27,5 km lang, elektrifisert jernbane som gikk fra Voss stasjon til Eide (Granvin stasjon) ved Granvinfjorden i Hardanger. Vedtaket om bygging ble fattet av Stortinget i 1919. Banen ble åpnet 30. mars 1935. Underveis ble byggingen forsøkt stoppet, da arbeidsminister Worm Hirsch Darre-Jenssen mente at traseen burde betjenes med bil i stedet for tog. Fylkestinget i Hordaland vedtok stans, men ble overprøvd av Stortinget.
Minste kurveradius er 180 meter, største stigning 45 promille og skinnevekten var 25 kg pr meter. Skinnevekten ble senere økt til 30 kg per meter.
Banen var i drift i vel 50 år. Persontrafikken ble nedlagt 1. juni 1985, godstrafikken i 1989. Sporet fra Voss til Palmafoss godsterminal (3,39 km) ble bevart som et sidespor. Store deler av traséen er i dag i bruk som gang- og sykkelvei.
