Östersund to Mora

Today is the second part of the journey along Inlandsbanan, from Östersund to Mora. The rest of Inlandsbanan from Mora to Kristinehamn has no regular services anymore (except for short part between Nykroppa and Kristinehamn). Last year I've covered that part as I was visiting it by car.
 On my way to Östersund train station in the morning

 Inlandsbanan AB railway company has both passenger and freight trains. Here is one T44 from 1969
 Manufactured by NOHAB (Nydqvist & Holm AB)
 Y1 1344 from 1980

 This line is more popular than yesterday's
 Between Östersund and Brunflo, Inlandsbanan is sharing the tracks with Mittbanan, but shortly after Brunflo they are separated

 Four legged passengers

 Max speed is 130km/h or 1km at 28sec

 The first Y1 cars were manufactured by Fiat in Italy, but later (like this one) were manufactured at Kalmar workshop

 Coffee stop at Fågelsjö, everything is prepared for the arrival
 On this part there is only 1 train operating, the same train will return back to Östersund from Mora later same day.

 Björnidet station is also the highest point along Inlandsbanan, 524m above sea level
 Along the line are the old facilities to refill the water into steam trains
 One of the most spectacular bridges along the line is Storstupet, 34m
