Shall the blue line between Skeppsholmen and Södermalm be the first crossing of Saltsjön anywhere east of Slussen?

I must admit I haven't figured the new t-bana line so far. To me, at least this first leg of it, looks fairly redundant to the Pendeltåg. In the first phase the improvements will be rather limited and barely worth the money, imho. Unless that corridor is creating a considerable ridership demand that can't be served by an improved Pendeltåg (Citybanan) system. So I guess the new line is all about further extensions across the centre.

It is completely pointless at present. It should be more than a stub from Odenplan. The big thing is that it connects the new Hagastaden district as well as the Karolinska Sjukhuset and Karolinska Institutet to the tunnelbana network.

Yeah, the line as currently planned is not a good idea. I saw the passenger numbers SL predicts. They're embarrassing. About the same as Nockebybanan.

A new North-South line that has interchanges with all the other lines and does not go by way of Centralen is a great idea. Thing is... This yellow line isn't that line. At all.

A few pictures from the Stockholm Transport network.

Firstly, starting with the blue line at Stadshagen station.






Followed by some photos of the Tvärbanan expansion. Here we start at Solna Centrum. Note the horrible modernist layout of Solna compared to the much nicer layout in other parts of inner suburban Stockholm. For some reason Solna Centrum really embraced the modernist planning style. I also thought it a shame they didn't put either a solid bed or grass down the Tvärbanan right of way. It looks a little ugly.





The new CAF rolling stock on the Tvärbanan at Solna Station.

Pendeltåg station at Sundbybergs Centrum.



Interior of the Alstom Pendeltåg stock.



Bonus shot at Stockholm Centralstation.

Some more videos from Stockholm too (from me).

Firstly - trains arriving on the blue line at Stadshagen.




Blue line at Solna Centrum and a short tour of the station




Walking from Solna Centrum Tunnelbana Station to the new Tvärbanan station. They really need to sort these walkways out. They look terrible...




Tvärbanan arriving at Solna Centrum.




Short ride on the newest section of the Tvärbanan between Solna Centrum and Solna Station.




Tvärbanan ride between Solna Centrum and Sundbybergs Centrum (one of the best suburban districts in Stockholm in my opinion).




Short video of a train arriving at Sundbybergs Centrum (and a few people saying hi to me)...




My citybound pendeltåg train arriving at Sundbybergs Centrum.




A ride (in rapidly diminishing light) between Karlberg Station and Stockholm Centralstation on the pendeltåg.




Views from the platform at Stockholm Centralstation. Note that there was a delay on the pendeltåg system due to security concerns (in other words, people behaving disgustingly). This is becoming more common...




Finally - the red line arriving (old Cx stock) bound for Mörby centrum at T-centralen.

Good news for the tram/light-rail fans!

Nu ska Spårväg City byggas ut

A new tram line will connect T-centralen with Ropsten via Norra Djurgårdsstaden.

Sorry to say, but that is typical recycling of information that has been up on the SLL website for months, if not years. It doesn't say anything that we didn't already know, and doesn't take into account the new political situation. There is a new city government, and on SLL level, M has grown more lukewarm when it comes to trams, and Christer G Wennerholm is also soon gone.

The line will probably get built anyway because of the large new depot under construction at AGA, but I don't think the political debate is over yet.

The Roslagsbanan has been undergoing extensive upgrades to allow for more frequent service. Here are a few pictures of the Roslagsbanan in general.

First at Universitetet Station (near the Universitetet Tunnelbana station on the red line).









At Täby Centrum (and a tour of the bus station).





The bus terminal here looks really good now. There are glass doors preventing boarding until the bus pulls in.



The glass door.



When a bus pulls in, the letter lights up to indicate the door can open now.



Roslagsbanan at Stockholm Östra Station.

Some videos of my tour of the Roslagsbanan.

Some views of the Saturday frequency in mid-afternoon at Universitetet station. The trains run pretty frequently.






A new section of double track has been opened between Häganas and Österskär. This video shows the new stretch. Now a train services this section every 15 minutes.






Trains at Täby Centrum station.




A long train ride from Roslags Näsby to Stockholms Östra station.




Finally, a tour of Stockholms Östra station.

What a great and extensive update! It aroused some good memories of me using Roslagsbanan a few years ago. Good to know that this light-rail system will be even more user-friendly from now own. Thank you for this reportage.

The timetable update was quite extensive. I mean, these are just those trains on the Täby Centrum branch. I mean a train every 5-10 minutes off-peak is nothing to be ashamed of in my opinion.

New hybrid buses that have been purchased and rolled out on inner city routes. Here is an example of one of the smaller buses (they also have large bendy buses). All the hybrids are electric/biofuel combinations.
