rapid/express trains from Oslo to Copenhagen

In planning our visits to Oslo and Copenhagen for mid-May to mid-June this year, I though I read that there was one of those super fast express trains between Oslo and Copenhagen, i.e., just one hour; BUT, I cannot find any information about it now, a month after I did my planning. Does anyone know if such a super fast express train exists between Oslo and Copenhagen? Thanks

It took us 1 hour to fly from Copenhagen to Oslo on a jet airliner. It's pretty doubtful a train can match that since the plane flew over the water. Why don't you just take an inexpensive non-stop flight?

There are no fast trains. The trip is around 8 hours. Flying is fastest. There is also an overnight ferry.

A super fast train that takes you from Copenhagen to Oslo in one hour is science fiction. The distance is 600km. There are no direct trains either, you would need at least a change in Gothenburg and the trip is about 8 hours. The Swedish railwais run the line, look at www.sj.se.
As other have also said, the fastest option is flying, try with either SAS or Norwegian.
The nice and slow option is the DFDS overnight ferry.
