Hellerup, Hillerød, Helsingør

My last day for this trip in Zealand starts as well in Valby. 
 I will travel north to Flintholm, Hellerup, Hillerød, and Helsingør (via Gilleleje). Original plan was to go take Kystbanen back to Copenhagen, but due to rail problems on the bridge, I took the ferry to Helsingborg for further trip back to Stockholm.
 First a ride in S-tog to Flinholm
 Today is not as sunny as the day before
 Flintholm is an important intersection station for two S-tog lines and Metro.

 Station opened in 2004.

 After another ride on S-tog, I am at Hellerup station.
 Station serves both S-tog and Øresundståg.
 Kystbanen (Coast line) and it was the first electrified railway in Denmark (electrification was made 1986). Since 1998 the line has been integrated with Kastrupbanen

 Class SA, 4th generation S-tog from 1996 manufactured by Alstom-LHB and Siemens.

 After a ride on another S-tog I have arrived to Hillerød.
 Hillerød station.
 Station serves several lines operated by Lokaltog with Lint trains.
 I will take Gribskovbanen to Helsingør.

 Bike covers


 From Gilleleje to Helsingør the railway is named Hornbækbanen
 Værftsarbejderne (Shipyard workers)
 One of the ferries for the HH Ferry route to Sweden which is only 4km from Denmark here.
 Helsingør station from 1891
 Alstom Coradia Lint and Bombardier Contessa
 Some services to Helsingør operates with IR4 trains, even though they are not approved for operation in Sweden.

 Øresund train is named X31 in Sweden and Class ET in Denmark

 "Konsttåget" ("Art train") is one of 5 Öresund trains with special livery.

 Helsingør is the end station for Øresund train on the Danish side.

 Ferry terminal is just next to the train station. The trip takes only 20min.

 Time for a snack


 Helsingborg ferry terminal is also connected to its train station. The building is called "Knytpunkten" and it opened 1991.
