Bryne is a city, located in, and the administrative centre of, the municipality of Time, Norway in Rogaland county. Bryne is located about 25 minutes south of Stavanger by train. The area of Bryne is 4,79 km².The municipality of Time, Norway has 15,459 inhabitants (2007) and the "urban settlement" itself 9,627 (2009). Its location in the prospering region of Stavanger/Sandnes and excellent traffic links making Bryne an attractive area for commuters, it is currently expanding rapidly and there have been reports of problems with schooling capacity.HistoryBryne was founded as Thime Station, reflecting its location along the railroad Jærbanen going from Stavanger to Egersund. The small village was one of many popping up around the new stations on the railroad finalized in 1878. A new chapel was soon built (Saron, 1878), as well as a store, a wool processing facility and a dairy farm.Several industries related to agriculture also emerged, producing ploughs, mowers and harvesting equipment. Many years later, the first excavator in Europe with complete hydraulic transmission of power, the Brøyt (Trademark), was introduced by the two brothers Kristian and Ingebret Søyland (1949). Also the company Tralfa developed the world's first spray paint robot, today run by ABB.Gradually, Bryne developed into a regional education center, with a dairy school established in 1906, the National Grammar School (Rogaland Landsgymnas) in 1924 and later also a vocational school. In 1921 the name of Thime Station was changed to Bryne by referendum. Bryne has since grown rapidly to become Jæren's most densely populated rural area and a regional trade center. City status was declared on 1 January 2001, the 49th largest settlement in Norway at the time.
