A railway station.
Brastad (1982) refers to the kyanite zone at Saltfjellet, and identifies a mineral in Svanbergite-Woodhouseite Series from a sample labelled "Bolna". The locality may refers to one of the three kyanite bodies at the western slope of Mt. Nasafjell described by Müller at al. 2005, or a kyanite occurrences near Stødi, or another kyanite body near Bolna Railway station.
