A set of two postal stationeries issued to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Nordland Railway in 2012. The construction of this railway lasted for 60 years. On the first card we can see King Olav V arrives at BodÝ Station for the inauguration of the line on June 7th 1962. Here a diesel-electric locomotive Class Di.3 (no 3.623) in front of the train. The pre-printed indicium on the card's back-side pays domestic postage and shows steam locomotive Class 33a with snow plow.

The second card shows a passenger train passing the Polar Circle one summer night with an diesel-electric locomotive Class Di.4 in front. The pre-printed indicium on the card's back-side pays postage world-wide and shows a diesel multiple unit Class 93. This tilting two-car units were produced by Bombardier in the years 2000-2002 and are used by NSB on non-electrified lines.
