Today I'm leaving Luleå and heading to Gällivare. The reason is to take Inlandsbanan train the next morning.
Historic IORE coach at Luleå station

SJ Intercity train to Narvik. It has 3 coaches: S-SSRT B9 5201, S-SSRT BFS9 5206, S-SSRT B2 5537.
B9 coach has an unusual compartment with seats in all possible directions. The compartment was intended for smokers.

The station in Gällivare is currently being modernised.
Station designed by Folke Zettervall in 1894.
