X11 train from Borås to Göteborg
The line I'm following now is coast to coast railway from Göteborg to Kalmar. The line opened in parts, the last part was finished 1902. Now there are plans to build a new high speed railway on the part Göteborg-Borås. Travel times will be reduced by half with the new line. If everything goes as planned the building will start 2020 and finish 2026.
