Malmö: one of few terminus-stations in sweden, allthough it partly became a through station when the new city-line was opened last year.

The Norwegian investigation of high speed lines also included routes to Stockholm and Göteborg. Lots of material to read through

Hello. In a few months I'm going to go from Copenhagen airport to Gotemburg by train. I would like to know if it's cheaper to buy the ticket now or if it would cost the same if I bought it in the station. Now, according to SJ's web page it would cost 410SEK.
Thanks.

It costs 416SEK to buy the tickets in the ticket machine at Copenhagen airport. The trains are regional trains called Öresundstĺg, no seat reservation is needed so you don´t need to buy tickets now. SJ don´t run direct trains on this route.

Great HD video from one of the most scenic routes in Sweden. The video has annotations with some information about this route.



And another great video from the Malmö-Copenhagen line. It has a second part with the Copenhagen-Helsingor line.

200 km/h but on the Danish side only 180 (signaling sytem limits). In the tunnel the speed limit is 160 i believe.

Hello, everyone! I would to ask you whether there is any map with the marked narrow gauge railway lines available? There are quite many lines in use in and around Stockholm, however it is not easy to find this information about other regions.
Thank you for your answers.

These pages might help you, though they're only in Swedish:
http://www.jarnvag.net/index.php/ban...sta-smalsparen
http://www.historiskt.nu/smalsp/smal_main.html

According to the first page Roslagsbanan is the only one still in use:

In the 1980s there were still a handful narrow-gauge lines in operation. The lines belonged to SJ with the exceptions Nordmark-Klarälvens Järnvägar (NKlJ) and Roslagsbanan in Stockholm, the latter being Sweden's only remaining narrow-gauge railway with regular traffic.

how's your Swedish coming along, btw?

Found this site today:
http://www.tagkartan.se/
It's a real-time map of Swedish trains.

The SJ has bought back the only exported X2 set that was sold to China in 1998.


The set being offloaded from the ship in the harbor of Uddevalla.







source and more pictures:
http://www.postvagnen.com/forum/index.php?id=650353

And a video.



The train won't come back into service in Sweden but the parts will be used for the next renovation of the Swedish sets that are now branded as "SJ 2000" to let them run for another 20 years.

According to the last link then the coaches will be put into traffic after they are refurbished. Most likely used to lengthen some of the shorter versions to the 7 cars that the longer ones have. The end-car and power-car will be used for parts.

I'm dreading to see that they have decided to run them for another 20 years, I would much rather see new trains to replace these problem filled trains.

Still nice to see it come back to Sweden.

These trains were a stupid idea to begin with, a cheap way to increase the speed on Swedish railways without having to invest heavily in infrastructure.

Now they are outdated, unmodern and impossible to sell as second hand trains so SJ have to stick with them until the bitter end.

The problem with the X2000 or X2 is that is is a very heavy and uneconomic train with poor performance, it is an unreliable train, it has pathetic acceleration and very poor passenger capacity compared to any modern train today.
