Lindesberg, Ludvika

Today I'm doing a short trip to Lindesberg and Ludvika, my goal is to see daily steel trains 9130 and 9133 between Oxelösund and Borlänge.
8AM at Stockholm C

I'm taking SJ Intercity to Hallsberg


X2 train that does not stop here

Neither do X74 train stop here

I'm leaving Hallsberg and taking the line Örebro-Frövi-Lindesberg
My plan was first to visit the Ställdalen station today and take a photo of train 9130 there, but after checking the real time location, I realised I would not make it, so I got off in Lindesberg instead.

Ludvika is an intersection point between Bergslagernas Järnvägar (Göteborg-Falun) and SWB (Stockholm-Västerås-Bergslagen) railways. SWB was once continuing all the way to Vansbro, but the tracks were removed during the 1980's, and today the line is ending here in Ludvika. It is still possible to view the remains of the line to Vansbro here near the bridges over Ludvika ström river.

Once the line between Ludvika and Vansbro was passing on this bridge

Hammarbacken is part of the first Crown ironworks founded by the King Gustav Vasa in 1550.

It is not easy to bicycle in the winter
