Hyllie must be the best top-class location for international companies in Sweden, it takes only 22 minutes with train to reach Kastrup Airport which by far is the busiest airport for international travel in Scandinavia.

It's even faster than that by about 10 mins (given it's on time, on line...)

SWEDEN: A group of Chinese firms under the brand Scandinavian Bridge & Rail Consortium Company says it is keen to help Sweden accelerate the delivery of its proposed 'inverse Y' high speed network linking Stockholm with Göteborg and Malmö.

Speaking at the Nordic Rail trade show in Jönköping on October 7, Yu Xing, Chief Engineer at the International Business Department of China Railway Siyuan Survey & Design Group Co, suggested that for 'capacity and efficiency objectives' to be met, it would make sense to deliver the project 'in a single phase'. The government's current plans call for construction of an initial 150 km section for 320 km/h operation between Stockholm and Linköping known as the Ostlänken or East Link.

That line is the line that passenger trains use along the Norrland coast. Looked up that station at http://xn--tg-yia.info/Ume%C3%A5%20%C3%B6stra and they seem to have 11 trains scheduled between 12:00 and 18:00 today (just an arbitrary sample time, there are earlier and later trains). So pretty decent traffic for station that isn't the city's main station IMO.

I reckon the first picture in the sequence offers a hint: there appears to be a concert in progress on the riverfront location adjacent to the station. An event site/park would generate passenger traffic, albeit intermittently.

And on the other side of the tracks there's a university and major hospital. Plus a few residential areas within comfortable cycling distance.

The Stångdal-line


Turnout with with snow brushes, Hjulsbro Linköping.



Y2 at Hjulsbro. There used to be a station here, but the building was demolished in 2002 or so.


Y31 at Hjulsbro. These railbuses go to Västervik, but sometimes they can be seen on the line to Kalmar too. Y2's can also be seen on the line to Västervik, but that's only if there is a shortage of Y31's. Both type of trains brake down quite often it seems resulting in replacement buses.


Railway crossing at Hjulsbro.


Railway crossing, Hackefors without signals or gates.


Y31 Itino going south at Hackefors, Linköping




Y31 Itino going south at Hackefors, Linköping.


An Y2 stops at Tannefors station.


The Y2 going to it's final destination Linköping C.

Hallandsåsen are almost ready for traffic and there is only some small works left to be done until they open on 13th december.
One of the things that remain to be done is to connect the current track with the one coming out from the tunnel as is visible in the first picture in the right tunnel.

Great that the project is finished but the price was very high for the 8km tunnel that makes the trip 4.1km shorter.

It took 23 years to build and costed 1.2 billion EUR

add to that the Rhoca Gil environmental scandal, local cattle and fish started dying and workers were becoming ill.

In comparison the 15,9 km long Öresund bridge/tunnel connection costed 1.9 billion EUR and took 5 years to build.

I'm posting on behalf of someone on RailUK forums. Can anyone here advise?

http://www.railforums.co.uk/showthre...73#post2354473

Quote:
Thanks so much for the advice and tips everyone...

Although it seems the smooth trip is not to be. Today I received a text:

"Hej! Trafikverket förbättrar järnvägen på sträckan Alingsås-Göteborg och din resa med tåg 10423 den 2015-11-14 med boxningsnummer QXXXXXXX ställs in. För ombokning eller återköp av din resa, vänligen använd länk: www.sj.se/andraresa. Due to railroad maintenance, your train 10423, 2015-11-14, has been cancelled. To rebook or cancel your journey, please use this link: www.sj.se/searchorder. Mvh SJ"

All I can say is.. WOW... Its a week to departure and they tell me by text a train is cancelled.. Why did they sell me a ticket for it then??

I have yet to establish if it is due to emergency works?? Or regular engineering works?? If the latter, why did they book the ticket..

This is going to cause MASSIVE disruption to the trip..

To be fair I don't even know what to do. I followed the link and entered the booking ID and email address and the next page is in 100% Swedish.. so I have NO IDEA what to do...

At this stage I am thinking just turn up and hope for the best as planned. The instructions to re-book etc are irrelevant as I do not speak Swedish.

Already regretting booking Swedish Railways !!!!!!
Quote:
Hi All thanks for the help and phone numbers

Tried ringing and nothing. The phone answers in Swedish but there is an English message saying for help in English press 7.. Have done several times and it never answers. Ive also tried ringing several times and pressing any option... no help. Nobody even answers.

I have probably made about 20-25 international calls to Sweden today at who knows how much £££s trying to sort this out.. Not even managed to get through to a person.....

Its ridiculous...

When I made the booking they charged me the equivalent of about £10 BOOKING FEE, to pay on a debit card and collect the tickets at the ticket machine/station (i.e. no postage costs).....

We complain about the Trainline... but these robbing b******* are taking the mick... especially by declaring engineering work at such short notice and not answering the phone to re-book when I call them which is costing even more money !!!

Why did they offer the train and take my booking over a month ago if there was planned engineering work, then give me LESS than one weeks notice to re book, which is impossible...

£10 booking fee!!! Daylight robbery....

That sucks, have he tried the contact form at: https://www.sj.se/support/contactque...&intcmp=190582
or tried to contact them via Facebook or other social media platform that they are available at to get some kind of reply on how he should go ahead with rebooking.

A double set of X2000 trains


For some reason 2 sets of X2000 arrived in Linköping at 14.54 today




A new type of information board display. I dont think that english is that necessary here.

In Swedish stations I often saw signs in Swedish as well as in English, so from a consistency point of view it makes sense to also make this sign bilingual.
