BTW: that older rolling stock is still in use on T10 line?I saw those thrain there only in rush hour so maybe there are a history already...?
The old subway cars are still around, yes. Will be for a few years yet, until the next generation of cars are delivered - and the bidding on that contract hasn't begun yet.

The rail and wires are already up on that bridge In fact, they've done a test-run from Alvik to about 15m short of Solna Centrum!

They are not that old though, built 1985-1989 so 23 to 27 years old. A subway car can run for 40 years perfectly fine, in Stockholm they usually have a lifespan of 35-40 years, for example many of the cars delivered in the 1950s still ran at the end of the 1990s, some close to 45 years in service.

Very nice video! Finally, a test driving was done on the new line.

If talking about the same video, the one can notice a side mirror being deformed after hitting a sign at 1:05 min.:

It seems so. Hopefully, this incident was not ignored. Otherwise, all the trams, operated in this line will have a specific mark.

Some more good news for Stockholm and this great thread.



'Alstom' has won a €440m order from the Swedish public transport authority Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) to deliver 46 new Coradia Nordic regional trains.
The new train order is part of an agreement signed in 2002 between Alstom and SL to replace the aging locomotive fleet on SL's network and extend its service.
Scheduled to be delivered in 2016, all 46 trains will be used to serve the lines of the greater Stockholm area, which brings the total number of Coradia Nordic trains ordered by SL to 129.

I'm guessing it means they'll replace the old trains and make the fleet bigger than today since deliveries will start the year before Citybanan opens.
"the aging locomotive fleet" is just flat out wrong though, SL doesn't have any locomotives in revenue service and hasn't since the 80s ('cept for a short time a few years back when old German commuter cars were used to keep services running when there was a problem with the new (or old?) commuter EMUs).

The camera man should have yelled stop there. Or maybe it was a show off?

Very, very pleased about further orders for the Coradia - they're excellent trains.

Buses:

Route 69 bus by Tomasz Nowak, on Flickr

Some time ago 'Stockholms Lokaltrafik' has set a goal of having the most buses run on the alternative fuels. Nowadays more than a half of the buses operated in the city and whole the region are either hybrid buses, either run on ethanol, hydrogen.
