Hova, Forshem, Vara, Degerfors

During all weekends in May this year I'm visiting Närke and surroundings. This weekend I will visit Kinnekullebanan railway and places around Örebro. 

On Thursday evening I spot this train 48304 from Vislanda to Kristinehamn.

Friday turns to be a rainy day, but it does not stop me. Today I will also have a company from a railway interested friend.
