Järlåsa, Broddbo, Vikmanshyttan, Ornäs
Today I'm visiting Dalabanan railway which stretches between Uppsala and Mora.
First stop is at Järlåsa, where it was a train station until 1971
The railway is operated by SJ Intercity service between Stockholm and Falun/Mora.
Intercity service is operated with locomotive hauled coach train, and sometimes with X55 EMU
Next stop is Vittinge, station building is still there, but there is no stop here anymore
Heby station is still operated by trains, here is X11 3137 arriving from Uppsala
Upplands lokaltrafik is renting 2 X11 from Kalmar länstrafik since 2017.
X11 is used on the short line Uppsala-Sala with two intermediate stops in Morgongåva and Heby
Old Heby station
Station house in Broddbo
Another Intercity train
After passing Krylbo, and Hedemora, I'm visiting Vikmanshyttan
Another Intercity with Rc6 locomotive
Vikmanshyttan station, or what is left of it.
At last, a station at Bergslagsbanan, which has recently been listed as culturally and historically protected. Ornäs station is one of 4 stations that got this listing. The others are Landeryd, Fåglavik and Pessinajokk.
Ornäs station which is located near Borlänge, was built in 1876.
