In 1867 the railroad passed the small village of Tyristrand and continued north finally reached Hønefoss. On October 12, 1868 the first train ran non-stop from Drammen and to Lake Rand in Oppland County. The railroad was named the Randsfjordbanen after Lake Rand its final destination. Another railroad was constructed from Hønefoss to the northern village of Hen and Lake Sperillen which was also connected to the Randsfjordbanen. Four years later, in 1872, the railroad joined the cities of Christiana (Oslo) and Drammen giving Hønefoss access to the great eastern cities. Finally, in 1909 the railroad reached Bergen and established and the link between the great metropolitan areas was complete.
