Actually, the elder trains are used in rush hours, aswell.

Yeah, the X1/X10 trains are used, but not the former Deutschebahn X420 stock. The X420 stock were either scrapped or put in storage.

Is SL planning on purchasing additional X60 or X61 stock for when the X10s are finally retired?

Another 12 units were ordered in 2009 to be delivered in 2012. I'm not sure if there is more up-to-date information than this, but this is what I know about for the moment.

Yes, indeed. However, i am not too familiar with the technique that is used here and what i mean were X1/X10 trains.

Nice to know that, even though it would be better, if the new trains were similar to the ones used in Malmö, i.e. pågatågen.

The X60 are very, very similar to those used on the Pågatågen in Malmö (X61). They are the same basic train but the Pågatågen trains are actually smaller. There have been a LOT of orders for the X61 though, they'll soon be running in Västerås, Jonköping, Gothenburg and on the Bothniabanan which is great news. It's really good to see such wide scale modernisation of the rolling stock across Sweden.

Transport Improvements

New Bus and Tram Depot on Lidingö

As part of the modernisation of the Lidingöbanan, a new bus depot and tram hall will be constructed in the Stockby industriområde. This is in preparation for the expansion of Spårväg City towards Ropsten.

The upgrade also consists of new vehicles and improved bus stops.


New Digital Signage at 1400 Bus Stops

To compliment the digital displays at all rail-based transport stations, new digital displays will be rolled out to 1400 bus stops across Stockholm County. All bus stops with more than 150 boardings per day will be equipped with the new system to ensure accurate and precise information for commuters and leisure travellers.


Improvement in service on the Roslagsbanan

Double tracking and extensive modernisation of the Roslagsbanan is ongoing with a new section of track under construction between Rydbo and Akers Ruhnu (a length of 5km).

Art in the Metro

Odenplan Metro Station



A new addition to Odenplan station is a black octopus made from silicone rubber. The work was made by Thale Vangen from the Malmö Art Academy.


Citybanan Station Art Commission

With the two new underground stations for the Citybanan which will form the central part of the pendeltåg system comes new artwork.

SL is now accepting submissions on artwork to fill the two new stations from across Sweden and Europe.

That octopus is creepy. Looks like smth worthy of 'XXX' rating


I hope it's okay if I post few pics of various public transport used in Stockholm.

First,various buses used in Stockholm (both LNG,biofuel & ethanol powered) Most are various models of Scania,the one on third photo is gas-powered MAN Lion's City.

Excellent pictures, Tin! I love the buses there given that they are CNG or bioethanol/biofuel powered too.

As for the octopus - it's only XXX if you're into certain Japanese stuff.

Today i went to Djurgården with one of these trams and now i can say that they are pure class. The trams complement the comfortable metro and pendeltåg systems well.
P.S.

Happy Easter to everyone!

As of 1 April 2011, the X1 is no longer used by SL. The remaining trains will be scrapped, although Bombadier have bought two X1 trains for ERTMS testing.

Excellent, thank you for the information! Unfortunately not being in Stockholm sometimes makes my information a little out of date so it's great to see others contributing to the thread.

Huh? Firstly, what expansion? Secondly, MTR are the current franchise holders for the Stockholm Tunnelbana. They took over from Veolia Transport who still run certain operations in Stockholm.

All public transport is overseen by SL in Stockholm.
