Sya, Strålsnäs, Frinnaryd, Solberga
This weekend's trip starts in Stockholm.
Sankta Klara church - located near the central station
Central station in Stockholm on Friday afternoon
1.53 min later I'm in Degerfors. This train 643 must be the fastest connection between Stockholm and Degerfors, since it is operated with X2 train.
Train 16818 from Karlstad to Sävenäs
Following day, I'm travelling to Södra stambanan to check some old stations. I'm starting with Sya which lost its passenger stop in 1973.
Sya is located between Mjölby and Mantorp stations

This weekend, the line through Hallsberg is completely closed, which means that trains between Stockholm and Göteborg have to take this southern line instead and travel through Helsingborg, Borås or Falköping.

MTR Express decided to operate only until Nässjö, where the rest of the trip to Göteborg was done with replacement busses. Here is train 96903 from Stockholm to Nässjö.
