Hästveda, Lammhult

There are still some stations I haven't visited along the Southern main line, so today I'm travelling there.
 Stockholm C in the morning

 First, X2 train from Stockholm to Hässleholm

 Freight train in Nässjö

 Arriving to Hässleholm
 Svensk Tågkraft TMX 1042

 Hässleholm station
 From Hässleholm I'm taking Krösatåg train 7558. X11 3188

 10 min later I'm in Hästveda
 The station here opened in 1860, the building is from 1868. Between 1975 and 2013 no trains were stopping here.

 Train 75313 from Älmhult to Malmö
 Green Cargo Td 378 and 389

 Art project "Tracks"

 "Waiting for" bench

 The station is now a lunch restaurant "Lokmästaren"

 Spring is in the air
 X31 4401

 Train 5613 Hallsberg-Malmö
 Taking off on the side track
 Rm 1259

 Train 3941 Snälltåget from Stockholm to Malmö

 Siemens Vectron 193 254

 Train 43348 from Malmö to Älmhult, operated by DBSRS

 Bombardier Traxx AC2 185 336

 X11 3110

 Train 4300 Helsingborg-Skelleftehamn

 Rd2 1080

 2 hours later I'm continuing with train 7560 to Alvesta

 In Alvesta I can spot two Transmontana six-axle locomotives

 Mb 4001 and 4002 are the first Transmontana locomotives delivered to Green Cargo for SSAB freight services
 Manufactured in 2018 by Softronic in Romania

 Since Alvesta is not the primary destination for these locomotives, I'm assuming that they are still being tested. Hopefully we will see them in regular operation soon.

 Book shop at the station, 20 SEK for each book. Payment only by Swish (Swedish mobile payment)
 X14 3237

 My next train is Krösatåg 17644 to Lammhult, operated with X14 3233


 X14 3233 at Lammhult

 Train 5611 from Hallsberg to Malmö

 There are only 6 Rm locomotives, and today I have seen two of them, 1259 earlier in Hästveda, and now 1261 here in Lammhult. The 1259 is by the way the only one with green livery.

 Bus stop in Lammhult

 "Lammhult has a long tradition with making furniture, presently production by designer brands are Norrgavel and Lammhult among several. It has also large retail stores for furniture and such items." (Wikipedia)

 X11 3107


 X2 back to Stockholm
 A longer stop in Norrköping (due to rail works ahead)
