Winter 2015 - Halmstad

This trip went on to Halmstad, on the HNJ (Halmstad Nässjö Järnväg). Unfortunately the weather was not the best, but all trains went without delays, that's the most important.
 First arriving to Nässjö station with X2 from Stockholm.
 From Nässjö, taking diesel Y31 (Itino) train, since the railway to Halmstad from here is non-electrified.
 Another Itino (Y32) arriving from Halmstad.
 Inside Y31, operated by Krösatågen company.
 The train has non bookable seats, so it is just to take any available seat.
 Passing by many small stations.
 Passing also by some rarities, Ma 827 NetRail locomotive from 1953.

 Train meeting in Landeryd.

 Finally arriving to Halmstad. Each train has a name, this one is "Emil i Lönneberga".

 Öresundståg (X31) with graffiti.
 Y31 is waiting before going back.
 Halmstad castle.
 Grey February weather.
 Old station building in Halmstad (North station), which is now a kindergarten.

 The old railway bridge, now used for bikes and pedestrians.

 Skånetrafiken has decided to paint some Öresundståg in different shapes. This one is called "konsttåget" (the art train).
 2 X31 trains, one unpainted, the other one painted.

 Time to go back home, taking X55 to Göteborg, then X2 to Stockholm.
 Passing by Falköping station.
 At Göteborg main station, there is a train from Blå tåget company.
 Old, classic, and with style. The only train company in Sweden with real restaurant car.
And music. One day there will a post about the Blå tåget here.
