Midtjyske Jernbaner was founded in 2008 by the merger of Odderbanen and Lemvigbanen, VLTJ. Since September 2016 Odderbanens infrastructure has been part of Aarhus Letbane.
The first tertiary railway in Denmark, Vemb-Lemvig Jernbane, drove the first official train on the 20th of July 1879. Both passenger and freight traffic was conducted by the company. In 1899 the section Lemvig-Thyborøn was opened. The railway has always strived to adjust the timetable to the greatest extend possible to the wishes and needs of the passengers. A high level of services combined with fast and safe transport makes the trip a nice experience.
