The station is located between two tunnels on the Bergensbanen: the Gravahals Tunnel to the west and the Vatnahals Tunnel to the east. Completion of the long Gravahals Tunnel was done in 1905. The station is above mean sea level.
On 17 January 1923, the station restaurant was taken over by Norsk Spisevognselskap. As the facilities were too small, the restaurant was later moved to another, larger building.
