Tågdagarna i Landeryd

This year I decided to visit the annual event called "Tågdagarna i Landeryd" which is taking place for the eighth time. It is an event arranged by Railway museum in Landaryd with heritage trains.
 Since the event is far away from Stockholm, I'm taking a train on Friday evening, and staying one night in Jönköping. SJ is operating this single direct service from Stockholm-Jönköping on all days except Saturdays. From end of Mars it will also be possible to travel with SagaRail. Otherwise, there is a need to change trains in either Nässjö or Falköping/Skövde.
 The trip taked 3h38min
 Passing by Linköping
 X55 train is doing its maximum speed on the line between Linköping and Mjölby
 From Nässjö the train is changing its direction for the last part until Jönköping

 Final stop - Jönköping
 It has been a warm and dry summer, and now it is time for some rain.
 Train 42586 from Jönköping godsbangård to Falköping
 The train is operated by Real Rail and Rc4 from Nordic Re-Finance

 After a night in Stora Hotellet I'm on my way visiting the Railway event in Landeryd.

 Arriving to Smålandsstenar
 Two trains are operating on the route Smålandsstenar-Landeryd-Torup. One with a steam and another with a diesel locomotive.
 Diesel locomotive is a TMX 1004 from Svensk Tågkraft. It was manufactured in 1960 by Nohab.
 Smålandsstenar station

 Besides the TMX 1004, there are also coaches B1S 4814, A2 5053, and AB3K 4873

 Inside the A2 coach
 B1S was originally a 2nd Class B1 coach, but it was rebuilt to a restaurant coach by Nässjö Railway Association

 The election in Sweden is in just one week, the local campaigns are basically everywhere

 There is a possibility to buy a coffee and snacks onboard

 Arriving to Landeryd

 Both trains are meeting here

 The other train is hauled by a steam locomotive SJ E2 1092
 SJ E2 1092 is also from Nässjö Railway Association and it is manufactured in 1911

 There is also a heritage bus service to/from Hyltebruk
 Time for departure

 Tickets can be purchased at each of the 3 stations
 I'm continuing the journey to Torup with the same train

 Due to that the railway has a single track, our train had to wait for the regular Krösatåg service here in Landeryd

 Arriving to Torup

 TMX 1004 is switching direction here

 Local representatives from main political parties here in Torup

The train I came with is now leaving Torup

Most of the trip is a fast journey with top speed
 Not far from Göteborg our train is stopped for almost 1 h due to "people on the tracks"
