In 2018 Fåglavik station was listed as cultural heritage building together with some other stations in Sweden.
Fåglavik station was constructed in 1858

I'm turned off from Västra Stambanan railway, and now travelling along Älvsborgsbanan part Herrljunga-Borås, here visiting Brobacken.

This railway is equipped with ATC (Automatc train control) but has no remote traffic control, and has to be controlled manually from Ljung and Fristad.
Usually there is only non-frequent service with Västtåg between Borås and Herrljunga/Uddevalla.

It can't be many passengers on this station, Torpåkra is a really small village with just few houses

Mollaryd is also a small village

Since 2015 there is a small library at the station
