Godsstråket genom Bergslagen
Today I'm continuing my journey along main line Godsstråket genom Bergslagen. A railway primarily used for cargo trains travelling south/north in Sweden. Two other posts were posted here earlier: post 1, post 2.
I'm starting off in Krampen.
The station is demolished
A small house is left
During summer time it has a museum about nearby camp from second world war time, where thousands of russian soldiers lived and worked. They escaped the USSR during the war, but were returned back later, which was basically a death penalty. More information can be found here
Just a few km from Krampen is Uttersberg. Until 1971 there was a narrow gauge railway here from Köping to Riddarhyttan. The station of Uttersberg is now a museum.
