They look very nice! Very "Stockholmish"/"SL:ish" As of yet I don't really use the tram much except for one ride every week, but hopefully that'll change. It's quite relaxing compared to buses and subway (although the subway also is kind of relaxing).

Indeed, funny how we all seem to find the railway more relaxing than buses... I find buses stressful myself.

Yeah, trams are just plain nicer to ride than buses. I too think they're looking real SL:ish the right shade of blue & a great fabric pattern.

Not sure if it's been mentioned in this thread, but there's also the A36 trams on the way for Lidingöbanan. The A36 is really the same model as these A35s, except they are one module longer. The reason for this is that that line isn't built for vehicles as long as a double-coupled A35.

Also, with the increased services planned there's no plans for retireing any of the current Tvärbanan trams - they're all gonna be needed. Hopefully they won't be used as long as the current Lidingöbanan vehicles (nearly 70 years).

These are really great news! Thank you very much for sharing them with us, Sweden. Like many others, I can't wait to see and try the new trams once they are officially introduced to Stockholm.

Stockholms geography is quite special, being situated on islands it is not convenient to travel to and in the inner city by car.

http://www.svt.se/nyheter/regionalt/...d-saltsjobanan
SVT ABC news story on a new deal to extend Tvärbanan to Sickla (creating an interchange station Tvärbanan-Saltsjöbanan) which will cost 410Gkr and take 3 years.

IMO: wunderbar!

I added it to my scribblemap of curernt & firmly planned Urban Rail in Stockholm.

If you look at the street in the second pic you'll see three tram tracks next to eachother. It goes that way for a full block.


EDIT:
The first of the new trams/LRVs is in Stockholm now! Model A35 (using the local "name") vehicle #454

Quoting a post made two days ago on the sparvagssallskapet.se forum:

Pics are of course (c) A32 on that forum.

Since no-one else has posted it yet, I guess it is up to me...


Beslut om byggstart av Tvärbanans Kistagren
Quote:
På frukostmötet i Kista Science City i morse blev det officiellt – byggstart för Tvärbanan till Kista Science City sker 2016. Det innebär att trafiken på Tvärbanan kan vara igång 2019.
[...]
Anders Lindström, förvaltningschef på trafikförvaltningen i Stockholms läns landsting, bekräftade beslutet om byggstarten för åhörarna på ett tidigt frukostmöte i Victoria Tower. Den tidigare risken om ytterligare försening av Tvärbanan till Kista är borta och bygget kommer igång inom tre år.
Tvärbana Kista in operation by 2019! That's the longer, outer northern branch of the LRT ring line.
Sh!t is really starting to happen in Stockholm


Current urban rail system:

System in 2019
Except for Spårväg City to T-centralen and I haven't heard commitments lately about Spårväg City to Ropsten either.

Some massive projects to be finished by then - Citybanan, all Tvärbanan expansions, Spårväg City, new rolling stock and signalling for the Roslagsbanan and Röda linjen.

Fingers crossed for the extensions to the blue line and the new tunnebana line to Hagastaden to have started construction too.

Screencap from the local news of the new C30 subway cars. 96 have been ordered with an option for 80 more. The whole initial order is bound for the Red Line which is also getting a new signaling system, aiming for 30 trains per hour.

As I said in the Swedish section, it's great to see longitudinal seating AND more doors per car too (as the drivers end of the C20's only have two doors). Hopefully this will increase capacity markedly in the new trains.

More doors is great as is longitudinal seating. One more thing about the doors: the seem to be (from both the drawing and one of the articles in the media) evenly spaced along the length of the car. I like that and wonder what it is based on, could there have been studies done on how that spacing affects how people use the doors? maybe fewer people bunched at the first segment of the car?

In fact, these trains look quite similar to a number of Japanese metro trains in their layout. Given the width of trains on the Stockholm tunnelbana, they're pretty close to Japanese dimensions too - definitely a move in the right direction as I didn't notice the same extent of bunching at the doors there as I do here (and in other places with stock that does force people to bunch near the closest doors).

I read there was some damage to the system due to civil unrest. It seems the Swedes are a bit shy about it as I can't find any photos online.
