as far as i knows, there's still no report on what happened. Drunk drivers doesn't appears to be a problem in Sweden and neither in Denmark and rest of the north, as far as i knows!

Maybe some system malfunction? electronics and computers would be my guess, since the train should be able to stop even if a wagons brakes is faulty, so there must be something wrong with the whole train.

I've got few photos of X2000 also,but I guess it's not point of posting them here as X2000 photos are already posted here.

EDIT: few more.

SJ will actually this summer replace 20 of the X2000 trains on "less important" stretches (Stockholm - Dalarna, Stockholm - Värmland) with brand new trains called Regina X55. They are in the same speed and comfort class as the X2000 trains, and the cars of the replaced trains will be added to the X2000 trains on the main stretches, between Stockholm - Malmö and Stockholm - Gothenburg, giving a higher capacity between our biggest cities.

Aren't Bombardier Reginas already in service in Sweden? I recall seeing those. Or are new X55's different from existing models?

The normal Reginas are more of a regional train, this one however shares the looks and interior of the X2000. Making them more comfortable and allow them to run on Inter-city lines.

Actually, trains in Sweden always have left-hand traffic, aside from some rare examples...

Well a little more than in "rare cases"
South of this site, (Webcam photo) about 5 km north of Malmö C, the Swedish railway system becomes a right hand rail system for the southernmost tip of the country (Skåne). This is in order to join up with the Øresund Link to Denmark where right hand running is normal. Freight trains also benefit from having the changeover placed here, as they can avoid crossing the main line on the level when acessing the freight yards.

Trafikverket ska utreda ökad kapacitet i järnvägssystemet

I dag fick Trafikverket ett regeringsuppdrag att utreda behovet av ökad kapacitet i det svenska järnvägssystemet, och lämna förslag till effektiviserings- och kapacitetshöjande åtgärder.

Som underlag till den här utredningen har Trafikverket den rapport om statusen på järnväg som togs fram i februari, samt höghstighetsutredningen från 2009.

Åtgärder som föreslås för tidsperioderna 2012-2015 samt 2016-2021 ska delrapporteras senast den 1 oktober 2011.
