Snapped some images with my phone of the construction of BanaVäg i Väst the other day. Sorry for dirty windshield (covered at least 3000km last weak so it didn't matter how many times I cleaned it...).

Commuter train station under construction.


Highway and railway side by side, also notice the glass noise barrier.


This is basically how the highway looks between Gothenburg and Älvängen, blasted rock on one side and the Göta Älv on the other.


Exit ramp.


Ramp and highway under construction.


Where possible they blasted the rock so that the the hillsides are used as on/off ramps, the photo doesn't depict how well it actually looks.

New generation long 'Volvo' buses '53220' which are designed to serve many passengers in a short time are being tested in Gothenburg these days. The new buses are created and tested by a cooperation of several transportation companies, the technology university and manufacturer: Volvo Bussar, Västtrafik, Chalmers Universitet ir Veolia transport using the concept of the large project ESBF (European Bus system of the Future).

Besides the M31 and M32 tram units shown above there are also a lot of older M29 and M28 units operating the network. M28 and M29 can be coupled with each other (and the withdrawn/scrapped class M25 trams). Two M28/M29's are about the same lenght as one M31 or M32 units. M31 and M32 is always operated as a single unit, while M28 and M29 are usually coupled in pairs. The standard configuration for such train is a M29 in front and a M28 behind.

M28 were manufactured 1965-1967 for the switchover to right hand driving (on 3rd september 1967 everywhere in Sweden). The older M25 class were manufactured for left hand driving but some units were converted. (All trams used regulary in Gothenburgs only has doors on one side and only one driving cab, thus the reference to right/left hand driving). All class M25/M28/M29 can be coupled in any combination, including back-to-back. When M28 were new the were used backwards in the end of two-three tram trains with one or two with a left-hand M25 in front. By running them backwards the doors were on the left hand side, thus they were usable in left-hand driving. When the switchover from left hand to right hand driving occured the trams changed places, right-hand M28's were leading tram-trains with left-hand M25's running backwards behind them. A lot of but not all M25's were converted to right hand driving.

(Nowdays some technical changes introduced on the trams has made the "couple in any direction" ability to be somewhat severed, AFAIK the basic driving works either way but some stuff like door control e.t.c. may not work correctly. That is not a problem as all but one left-hand drive M25 are scrapped, and the saved left-hand drive M25 like all M25 is at the tram museum, and that unit is also wired so it can (only) be coupled back-to-back to right-hand drive units. Trivia: during a recent rather severe derailment on the stretch between Gamlestadstorget and Bellevue the left-hand drive museum M25 were used together with a right hand drive unit to be able to run a shuttle service on the single track not blocked by the derailment, while ordinary trams ran Bellevue-Bergsjön using the turn back loop at Bellevue in reverse (and at Gamlestadstorget all trams ran through to Angered)).

M29 were manufacured a few years after M28. All M29 were refurbished/rebuildt a few years ago with complete rust repairs, new paint externally and internaly, new fabric on the seats, new motor operated doors replacing the manually operated doors on the middle of the trams, new ticket machines accepting coins and credit cards installed, new vacuum flourucent lights installed e.t.c..

Some M28's are alse refurbished/rebuildt but some of them only partly, for example some M28's were used to try out how the refurbishment of the M29's should be done, some M28's are refurbished as parts of tests to exchange the engine control systems, some were partially refurbished after colliding with road wehicles. (All road wehicles i Sweden must have an insurance, if you forget to pay your insurance a really expensive "default" insurance is automatically assigned to your wehicle, and in general (the driver of) a road wehicle is almost always the part considered to have done something wrong in tram - road wehicle collision. In principle if a wrongly parked car gets hit by a tram, it's the car drivers fault that the car got hit. Thus some M28's have been refurbished using money from road wehicle insurance companys).

Most M28 have manually operated doors on the middle and the rear end of the tram. Those manually operated doors have springs that closes the doors if noone is pushing them open, and has an electro magnet keeping the doors closed when the tram isn't at a tram stop.

The M31 trams were manufactured in the 80's by ASEA, at that time as M21 units. In the 80's a tram train were usually made of two M21 or three M28/M29 units (giving a tram train lenght of approximately 45 metres). About a decade ago the M21's were fitted with a new low floor (wheelchair accessible) middle section, and at that time the couplings were changed to only be used in emergency situations. When those modifications were made they were assigned the new class name of M31.

M32 has been manufactured since 2005-2006 and is currently being manufactured by AnsaldoBreda in Italy.

Select "Göteborgsområdet" in the left select box, and "_Linjekarta stadstrafiken Göteborg" for all local bus lines except the four trunk lines. Select "_Linjekarta spårvagn" for a map of the tram lines and the four trunk bus lines.

Vänersborgståget (Gothenburg Central Station - Trollhättan - Vänersborg; 86 km, 4 stations);

Boråståget (Gothenburg Central Station - Borås; 71 km, 7 stations);

Bohuståget (Gothenburg Central Station - Stenungsund - Uddevalla - Strömstad; 180 km, 17);

Skövdetåget (Gothenburg Central Station - Alingsås - Skövde; 144 km, 8 stations).
There is also a line from Gothenburg to Nässjö via Falköping and Jönköping. That line is scheduled together with the Gothenburg-Skövde and the Skövde-Nässjö line so with an interchange in Falköping you get a connection every hour even while each leg of the triangle only has a through train every second hour.

Select "Tåglinjer Västtågen" on the Västtrafik map link above to see a train route map.

All above lines are (overhead line) electrified (by swedish standard electrification 16kV 16 2/3Hz, approximately the same voltage and frequency as in Norway, Germany, Austria and Switzerland).

There is also a diesel operated line from Gothenburg via Herrljunga-Lidköping-Mariestad up to Hallsberg-Örebro.

The electric lines is served by X11, X12, X14 and X50/X53 EMU's.

X11, X12 and X14 is three versions of the same basic train design from the 80's (with its root in X1 from mid 60's) with thyristor based phase-angle continously variable power regulation, similar to the construction of the Rc electric engines. The difference between X11, X12 and X14 are differences in the transmission/"gearbox"*to get different combinations of acceleration and top speed and different door configuration. They are not suited for wheelchair users.

X11 has slowest top speed (140km/h) but best acceleration and is mainly used on the commuter lines Gothenburg-Alingsås and Gothenburg Kungsbacka. The seats have a rather high standard. When the trains were introduced the idea was to get car commuters to switch to commute by trains, hence the (by commuter train standard) luxurios seats. The trains also used to have headphone sockets at each seat and a selector for listening to a few radio channels (like on airplanes) but AFAIK that system isn't really supported any more as evereyone who wants to listen to music nowdays have their own radio/mp3 player.

X12 and X14 has higher top speed (160km/h). X14 has the same door arrangement as X11 with four pairs on each (50 metres long) unit.
X12 only has two door pais on each unit, intended for regional traffic.

Each X11/X12/X14 unit consist of two semi-permanently coupled waggons

X50-X54 is a set of different configuration on an EMU series intended for regional traffic, developed in the end of the 90's. The have threephase asynchronous motors and have an extra wide body making 3+2 seating possible with almost the same comfort level as 2+2 seating on an ordinary train. In Gothenburg X50 and X53 is used. X50 has a top speed of 200km/h and X53 a top speed of 180km/h. There are 230V AC electric outlets at the seats for charging your phone, laptop e.t.c., using "schuko" connectors (standard AC outled in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Austria, Hungary e.t.c., compatible with the flat euro plug connectors used almost everywhere in Europe except the UK). One door pair is at a lower height and there is an elevator at that door pair to let wheelchair users enter the train at low platform level and use the elevator to access the rest of the train.

For the line southwards to Halland, Scania and over to Copenhagen and Helsingör in Denmark X31K/ET is used. X31K is the class name for swedish owned trains, ET is the class name for danish owned trains. The only difference is ownership and marking, otherwise the trains are identical. There are special rules for riding theese trains of you have a "native" ticket/card used in the Gothenburg / Västra Götaland area. (If you are unsure, ask customer support or ride the Göteborg-Kungsbacka commuter train instead). As Denmark has a different standard for grounded 230V AC connectors theese trains has an exception for the otherwise mandatory demand for grounded outlets. Therefore AC plugs of the old ungrounded type fits, schuko fits, the grounded connectors used in France, Poland, Czec republic, Slovakia fits, europlugs fits, Russian/Soviet GOST connectors fits, but none will get a ground connection. The trains are known for having low standard seats (especially the window seats don't have much space for your legs) and somehow the toilets tend to have a urine smell even if the floor seems clean. For a local ride they are ok but for the 3+ hour trip Gothenburg-Copenhagen the seats tend do feel uncomfortable. The mid section has a lower floor height and is wheelchair accessible. The mid section also has a "flex space" that can be used for bicycles e.t.c., with fold-down seats on the walls. There are wending machines for coffe e.t.c. on theese trains. The wending machines accept swedish and danish money but only gives change back in danish coins!

On the diesel line two classes are used.
Y1 is a DMU buildt in Italy in the 80's for almost all non-electrified railway lines in Sweden. Almost all are somehow refurbished (AFAIK all used in the Västra Götaland area are refurbished somehow). From the beginning the idea was that teese DMU's should be able to pull a small two-axle wagon for the travelers luggage. Therefore they have standard two-buffer and screw connection coupling and standard air brake system as in almost all loco hauled trains in Europe. In practise though the engines were too weak to pull other wagons, so Y1 units are only connected to other Y1 units (except in special situations like the maintenance contrator moves another wagon a few metres using an Y1 as an "engine" or similar). Y1 gives a rather comfortable ride even on tracks in bad shape. Theese trains are not wheelchair accessible.

Y31/Y32 is a DMU buildt in the 2000's. Y31 is 38 metres long and has two door pair, Y32 is 55 metres long and has three door pairs. The middle section of the train has low-floor to give step-free entrance on stations with a rather low platform height, thus the trains are wheelchair accessible. They have 230V AC schuko outlets at the seats for charging phones/laptops.

All trains have on-board WC's. All trains only have 2nd class. (In theory the X31/ET "Öresundståg" also has 1st class but the only difference is other fabric on the seats, so I don't really count that as 1st class).

Some good news from the Port of Gothenburg:

New forestry terminal opens at the Port of Gothenburg




The logistics company RPG Logistics opened its new logistics terminal, specialising in the forestry industry. The forestry terminal receives paper, pulp, timber and other forestry products transported by rail and road from paper mills and sawmills throughout Sweden. After being reloaded into containers, the goods can be shipped by sea to export markets throughout the world.

The terminal is located at Arendal, directly beside the port.

The 20,000 square metre terminal has the capacity to handle 1.5 million tonnes of paper and other forestry products each year. This is equivalent to 110,000 containers (20-foot, TEU), which would be a significant addition to the Port of Gothenburg. Exports to Europe pass mainly through the port's Ro-Ro Terminals and exports to other parts of the world pass through the Container Terminal, APM Terminals Gothenburg.

Trains travel directly into the terminal

Double tracks, one of which is inside the building, make it possible for trains to travel all the way into the terminal. Designated roads facilitate road transport between the terminal and the port.

The terminal will also handle transshipment of import goods from container to truck for onward movement to trade and industry throughout Sweden. Steel and other forms of freight will be handled at the terminal.

New cruise terminal at Arendal

The Port of Gothenburg has built yet another cruise terminal. With the new terminal at Arendal, the physical conditions for receiving tourists arriving by cruise ship will be improved.
Gothenburg has become an increasingly popular destination for cruise travellers. The number of calls by cruise ships has increased substantially in recent years with new record figures every season. This year, 67 vessels will visit Gothenburg, carrying over 70,000 passengers.
The new cruise terminal at Arendal is 200 square metres in size and houses a souvenir shop and a waiting room.
According to Jill Södervall, head of cruise operations at the Port of Gothenburg, the number of cruise ships visiting Gothenburg is on the increase. "We need to welcome tourists in a pleasant way. The passengers first impression when they step of the ship is very important to their overall experience of their Gothenburg visit."
The Port of Gothenburg has two cruise terminals. One is in the centrally located Free Port and the other is at Arendal, beside the Volvo Museum, for the very largest cruise ships that are too tall to sail under the Älvsborg Bridge.
"Arendal is a pleasant port environment with a cafeteria, museum and walking area where passengers can move around freely. It is also easy to make your way into the city by bus or boat."

Source

Some notable ships such as Queen Marry II, Seabourn Sojourn, Ocean Dream, AIDAcara to visit Gothenburg this year.



A German AIDAcara can be seen in the picture. The ship will visit the city 22 times during this season.

According to the arcticle, 'Västtrafik' to improve the railway connection between Gothenburg and Karlstad. Starting from 1 July the newly-built trains 'Regina' with both 1 and 2 class vagons are set in the line. While in December, the number of departures per day will be increased as well as the travel time will be shortened by a quarter of an hour after the timetables are changed.
First, the new trains only run between the towns of Karlstad and Trollhättan. When infrastructure work is completed in August, the new trains will run the entire length of the distance.

The double-decker buses serve an inter-city line between Gothenburg and Borås (a town which is quite close to the city and many people travel to/from there during the rush hours every day).

One reason for them having such a service with the same livery as the suburban lines is that the transit agency for Gothenburg isn't only for gothenburg, but for the entire Västra Götaland county (wiki link). So the city of Borås is still deep within the territory of the same transit agency.

That's nice! It's the first way that I see double-decker coaches in suburban lines (less than 100 Km).

Another example is the Stockholm Östra (station) - Norrtälje line in Stockholm county. I travelled by a similar bus in that line and the experience was like travelling by a city bus which is a bit more comfortable, plus the one can enjoy the views from the upper floor.

Åh, Göteborg..
This is a well-captured tram ride from Brunnsparken to Östra Sjukhuset (line no. 1):



Line no. 4 to Mölndal centrum:
