A new CAF A36 tram designed for Lidingöbanan light-rail line (Lidingö island, Stockholm) was spotted during a test-driver in July this year:

Another little tour of a few stations in Stockholm.

First up, Bergshamra station. This station is located on the red line (Mörby Centrum branch). It's a rockcrete station with some interesting artwork.






Next up - Solna Station. This station has a new entrance at its north end (from 2013).

It may well be a picture with the older entrance control system. The new system doesn't look too different anyway. However, the new gates are installed in some stations which I bypassed once myself. Perhaps, I cannot remember where exactly are installed - T-centralen, Gullmarsplan or Liljeholmen station.

Aha, so they changed the control system? Interesting. I'll have to go and take a look for myself. Cheers for the info.

Thanks for all the great information on here! Relocating to Stockholm next year for studies and will no doubt be using the rail network a lot from Universitetet!

Be prepared. Winter is coming.

Universitetet is my neck of the woods. Need any info, let me know.

They've not opened it yet have they? Have they set a date yet after the signalling problems?

Late fall / early winter 2015 is the planned opening now. They HAVE solved the signalling issue. At least in part by getting new axle-counters from a different supplier - which meant that system had to be tested and approved by the proper authority. Which has now been completed afaik.
I wonder how long time it will take for Lidingöbanan to get up to the old passenger numbers, on the one hand it'll now use far better vehicles and have more double tracking making a more frequent, more reliable and more comfortable service possible. On the other it was replaced by busses for two years which probably ment the modal share of cars increased (and that's hard to get back).

Indeed, it was badly handled. I liked taking the Lidingöbanan and am looking forward to taking it again (and featuring it on my channel actually).

Good to hear the issues have been solved finally. The news was a little vague about it all and I only read about "autumn 2015".

Here's a good thread on the issue: (in Swedish - if you can read it)

MTR’s Stockholm metro contract extended
09 Sep 2015



SWEDEN: Stockholm transport authority SL exercised an option on September 8 for MTR Stockholm to continue to operate the city’s metro network for a further six years.

The subsidiary of Hong Kong’s MTR Corp began operating the network in November 2009 under an eight-year contract. This has now been extended until 2023. The 110 km metro carries an average of 1·2 million passengers on weekdays

I'm not surprised. MTR has been handling it pretty well.

Indeed. Shame the workforce is still made up of people who could not care less about good customer service or have any job responsibility though. I just give up with complaining inside Sweden now if ever there is a problem, like drivers of the tunnelbana texting and driving, because Sweden does nothing as per usual when thee is an issue in this country. Instead, if I send an email to HK MTR corporate offices in Hong Kong, I actually get a phone call back and a promise of the situation being rectified. So yes, I am glad that a foreign company is running things.
