Back in the beginning of the 1900’s it was decided that there needed to be a railroad between Grindsted and Ejstrupholm via Funder and Brande. The railroad opened October 1st, 1920 and had a large impact on the local societies. The fact that there was now a railroad, meant that people started moving to the cities along the railway line. The railway never became a success, because cars started to emerge. This meant that passengers stopped using the trains. In 1993 the last train tracks were removed between Højlund and Brande. Instead of being a railroad the trail, which has now been named the Skæve Bane (crocked road) has been converted into a nature trail.
