Randsfjord Station ( _no. Randsfjord stasjon) was a railway station at located on the west bank of the south of the lake Randsfjorden in Jevnaker, Norway. Passengers could transfer to steam ship for transport on Randsfjorden.

History

The station was opened in 1868 when it became the northern terminus of Randsfjordbanen. In 1909 Bergensbanen was completed along with Roa-Hønefossbanen, that on the east side of Randselva built Jevnaker Station about one kilometer from Randsfjord Station. Since the through trains between Oslo and Bergen went through Jevnaker, and it was better located to Hadeland Glassverk and the sawmills, Jevnaker took most of the traffic.

Passenger traffic to Randsfjord station was terminated on May 26, 1968; 100 years after the opening of the line. Since January 1, 1981 there has been no traffic on the line between Bergermoen and Randsfjord, with the tracks being removed in 1984.
