True, there are many other new lines/extensions that are clearly a higher priority. If/when it is built I hope it is: standard gauge, has stations with passing express tracks, has a connection to Norrtälje harbour, has spurs into a few industrial areas, has a connection towards Arlanda (using that proposed line, with a track that makes it possible to go straight ARN-Norrtälje).

Agreed - that would be a good route as it would link up a lot of the north of Stockholm. Would be nice if the same line also looped around Stockholm to the west too.

I have photographed this station before so I've not taken many, just a couple of different perspectives.

You mean the Roslagsbanan? Wikipedia has a little map of the Roslagsbanan.

As for the standard gauge, not sure.

Okay as far as I can see. SL executes almost total control over service provision etc, so as far as I can tell MTR have very little leeway.

Spårväg syd


Image hosted on YIMBY all credit to YIMBY.

A 14km long light rail link in southern Stockholm has been given the provisional green light recently. The light rail line will link key nodes in southern Stockholm and new employment centres in Huddinge and Stockholm as well as improving connectivity between the tunnelbana by connecting both red lines, and the pendeltåg to the tunnelbana. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2020 on the first stage between Skärholmen and Flemmingsberg.

It was the Saltsjöbanan, and this is not Grand Train Auto.

This story baffled me when I read it this morning. Cleaner stealing a train - things just took a turn for the perverse really.

That belongs in the Subways & Urban Transport Stockholm thread It's a suburban railway, you see. The rail line is exclusively used by Saltsjöbanan.

adding my comment from the infra-thread in the local Stockholm forum:
This might lead to a new signalling system, especially since the line doesn't have any ATC yet(!). Since the Tvärbanan LRT is getting a new signalling system this year it would make sense to get the same on this line too. There have been plans to connect the two lines for a decade (tho it has never had everyone's support) so getting the same signalling and eventually the same cars makes a lot of sense IMO. Oh, and obviously it should be double tracked where it is not and the level crossings should be eliminated as far as possible.
