    Overload!

    Too much to put on a picture, the tram on the lift bridge over the Gta lv only plays a minor part... ;)
  2. Gteborg Tram 1

    Gteborg Tram 1

    Gothenburg city is dominated by wide and bright boulevards and canals.
  3. Rubber Nose

    Rubber Nose

    resund trains are operated by both DSB and SJ (Swedish class X31K). These "rubber noses" link Malm and Copenhagen over the bridge every 20 minutes, but also go on further into Sweden and Denmark. Although celebrated as "flexible" these things are far from that. Always...

    A dark, anonymous crowd moving towards the train.

    Cab @ 60 kph

    No, not the front, but its nice to sit all the time in the rear cab on the drivers seat! ;) Cab on an Inlandsbanan railbus built by Fiat taking all day for the 700 km from stersund to Gllivare.
  7. stersund Station Meeting

  11. X2000 Spotlight

    Trains cross the city center very prominently on a bridge.

  16. Tyska loket

    Tyska loket

    This one is made in Germany just after WW1 and sold to Sweden as surplus. This type of steam locomotive was made for the German army for use in the trench warfare and was used in transport duty.
  17. Not a bad spot... ;-)

    Not a bad spot... ;-)

    Probably my favourite spot on my recent holiday (although there were many other great ones :)): on top of Stockholm town hall tower! SJ X2000 high speed train is leaving Stockholm Central Station down South to Gteborg as train 441 at 16:10 over the bridge North of the historic city center...
  18. Enough?

    Enough?

    There must be enough diamonds here?
