Will be good for them to run another tour. I'd actually like to go on it now.

The C30s are prepped for fully automated use, but won't be used that way for several years. Not before the red line only has C30 at the very least, possibly not until the Red line has platform screen doors (the last one is me wildly speculating).

Thanks SO much! Could you type it in Swedish if you don't mind? It's for a project and I don't want to butcher it via google translate.

MTR wins Stockholm suburban rail concession
Tuesday, December 08, 2015



STOCKHOLM County Council announced on December 8 that it has selected MTR Nordic, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong's MTR Corporation, for a concession to operate the Stockholm Pendeltåg suburban rail network for 10 years from December 2016

MTR beat off competition from Abellio, Keolis, Swedish national train operator SJ, and Tågkompaniet for the contract, which could be worth up to SKr 30bn ($US 3.5bn) if the county council exercises an option for a four-year extension. In addition to operations, MTR will be responsible for rolling stock maintenance and station management

Interesting, I didn't realise the pendeltåg was up for tender. It was run by the county directly before (Stockholms tåg).

Pretty neat news, knowing that MTR already has a good reputation in the market.

I'd say that MTR has a reputation as good as the infrastructure it works with. It has a fairly lousy reputation in Melbourne after taking over the old Connex network there and replacing it with "Metro Melbourne". This was due to infrastructural deficiencies in the Melbourne network.

In contrast, the Stockholm tunnelbana has good infrastructure overall and therefore they've not had the same challenges. The pendeltåg, however, has pretty awful infrastructure, is quite often not running on time and has a poor reliability history. These are not necessarily something that an operator can compensate for without investment form the government. What I see is that when Mälarbanan and Citybanan are finished, the pendeltåg will improve dramatically, but this, I don't believe, will be fair to attribute to a change in operator.

Videos about the new subway yellow line. 3 new stations will be built. One of them will be localized under the current Odenplan station (green line).

Odenplan station will be localized under the current green line (all branches) station.





Hagastaden station





Arenastaden station will be localized behind the current commuter train (pendeltåg) station and Tvärbana.

The Odenplan solution is so incompetent that I don't even know where to begin. Seven years ahead of opening and we already know the coming discussion on extension.

Why do they even call it a separate line if it's going to be so interconnected with the green line? They should have called it the Arenastaden branch of the green line.

Two mistakes I noted in the videos above:
1. In the Hagastaden video, they enter the platform from the north, i.e. facing Odenplan, but the incoming train (northbound) is signed as going toward Odenplan.
2. In the Arenastaden video, the first traffic info sign says that line 133 towrds Ekensberg is leaving now. That's a bus line departing from Liljeholmen.

I agree completely. The line/branch is very poorly thought through. A slap-dash idea that was small enough (and touching a couple of places that are seeing serious construction) that the politicos could scrape together funding for this bit. Any more long-term planning seems absent.

The mistakes in the vid do take a transit nerd to spot - but will confuse some others
The vids themselves, those I'm impressed with. Very well made.

The New C30 metrotrain



New subway trains are introduced in Stockholm. The coaches will accommodate more travelers. Moreover, the trains run without drivers.
- A few years ago, there was always room for all passengers. Even in rush hour. Today it is not so, says Pär Isaksson at Bombardier, which builds trains.

The population is growing. Hence the need for new, more efficient metrotrains. New trains and carriages will be in service on the Red Line. Specifically, 96 trains with a total of 384 wagons.

The SL (Stockholm Public Transport) has made a study and concluded that the red line is in the greatest need for increased capacity. Especially between the Centre and the station "Institute of Technology", says Pär Isaksson, head of communications at Bombardier, the company that builds the trains.

"1 000 people per train"
The new cars will accommodate more people than today's subway trains.
- Stockholm is growing extremely rapidly. We need room for more people in the cars. A few years ago, everyone always had a seat. Even in rush hour. Today it is not so. In the new trains will get 15 percent more passengers. There are nearly 1 000 people in a train.

To fit a thousand people per train into the cars, there has to be different types on trains rolling on the tracks than today.

- The cars have fewer seats, almost completely flat ceilings, large windows, wide aisles between carts and more doors. They will be less crowded, says Pär Isaksson.

Those who love the classic lines with seats dont need to be moping. They will partly remain.
- The coaches have mixed seating. On one side there will be chairs as it is now, and on the other side there will be longitudinal seating.

Also new is that the seats get a new fabric with patterns similar to the ones
found at the at Sergel Square.


Another new feature is that the trains are built so that they can be driven without a driver.
- They are adapted to do that. Internationally it so that more trains are running without driver, which means greater accuracy in departures. It is easier to keep to schedule and it works very well. Copenhagen has no drivers on the subway. The system has various security features and it can brake automatically.


The new trains are expected to roll out in Stockholm in 2017.

That's the third article I've seen over the last few months - and none have any new info really.

2017 is next year! The C30 and Citybanan are both coming next year. Will be awesome.

I wonder how the first roll-out of the C30 will be handled. The C20 was packed on the first day, lots of us wanting to try it. Doors malfunctioned after a few hours and that train had to be pulled from service. Took a few years for the doors to be properly reliable on the C20 iirc.
