Hello

Alex - as far as I know it is not possible to acces the leitstand, all entrances are bricked up - if you are thin enough it might be possible to go through the slit in front.

Some text and pictures here, also a lot of other sites in Norway here:

Alex it's a real SK. It does feel a bit like a 636. Haven't measured it.

Here is a post-war norwegian drawing of the Varnes site.
The dashed line is the leitstand, 15m above the tunnel/kasematte-level (except for the dome-like roof over the observation-room, there's no similarity with a R636).
More photos are posted at http://www.kystfort.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=334
