Abisko to Luleå

After couple of sunny days, the weather is now changing to be both cold and rainy for some days. I guess it is not unusual in the north, but it's of course always a disappointment. Anyway, my trip continues, I still have to visit Kiruna, Luleå, Haparanda and Gällivare before heading back south.
 Today I'm leaving Abisko. First visiting Kiruna, then continuing to Luleå.
 Inside waiting hall of Abisko turiststation.
 First train today is this IORE

 After just 20min, another one in same direction.
