They did close off the track the derailed train had travelled on. That is didn't strike the responsible that the train could be a danger to trains on the neighbouring tracks must be considered less than ideal crisis management. Hopefully a lesson learned for the future. In a different location this could have ended really badly, "crumple zones" or not.

Whenever there has been a "person on the track", they close down the system for hours. Why they don't do the same when a multi-ton train has derailed is beyond me (then open track by track when checked clear).

I believe that is called gross ineptitude and an inability to do ones job properly. People should be fired for this, but of course in Sweden no one ever gets fired for doing a bad job.

People have asked about the platform screen doors at Åkeshov station. I made a video on the subject today including pictures, details and videos of operation. Hope you find it useful.

Stockholm metro train design unveiled
05 Mar 2015


Bombardier says that the train's 'design language is based upon the "Open City" vision'


A cake was used to represent external design of the metro cars at EurasiaRail

SWEDEN: Bombardier Transportation revealed the design of its articulated Movia C30 metro trainsets for the Stockholm metro Red Line at EurasiaRail 2015 in Istanbul on March 6.

The air-conditioned trains feature three sets of double doors per car rather than two, as well as a reconfigured seating layout, to increase capacity and passenger flow. In addition, the number of wheelchair spaces has been increased to eight.

The trains will have Bombardier’s Flexx Eco bogies and Mitrac propulsion system. According to the manufacturer, 98% of materials used will be recyclable

Interesting how the new paint/wrap job on the tunnelbana trains resembles the current Pendeltåg trains. Are we going for a unified design for the rail-based transport in Stockholm?

Well, actually, we WERE going for a unified design until they changed the wrap on the new Tvärbanan trains.

Well, that's not bad. However, the new cars will not have that cool look of C20 it seems.

Stockholm's Newest Parking Garage Is Only For Bikes

700 bike spots, lockers, and showers—and not an engine in sight

Quote:
When it's built, the newest parking garage in Stockholm won't hold any cars at all. It's designed to hold 700 bikes instead. (...)
The garage, near a major train station, is being designed from the ground up for cyclists. Instead of doors with handles, entrances will automatically slide open, so cyclists can ride in directly from the adjacent bike path or street. The designers also plan to include a bike repair shop and changing rooms where commuters can shower, dress for work, and leave their helmets in lockers. (...)
Unlike a regular parking garage, it's a place where people might actually want to spend time.(...)
The garage will be part of a building that also has almost 60 apartments. None of the residents are expected to own a car. (...)
The bike garage is likely to be one of many in the future in Stockholm. "Space in Stockholm, especially in the inner city, is limited," says Mogert. "And biking and public transport is much more efficient than having people commute by car. This project will be interesting to follow and evaluate later on, hopefully it will prove to be a success and that could inspire other, similar projects to develop." (...)

February picture of Stockholm City station construction - as far as I understood, it is passage between metro and commuter rail lines?

Veidekke constructs a 340 m long bridge for light-rail which will connect the new tvärbanan line to Kista with the line Solna-Alvik. The realisation of this project is divided to two stages. The bridge will be mounted in year 2017.

A few videos of public transport in Stockholm.

First up - a ride on the Roslagsbanan from Ekskogen to Kårsta at the very end of the line.







A panorama at the waterfront of Gamla Stan. At the end of the video you can see the density of service on the combined metro lines (red and green) between Slussen and Gamla Stan.
