Another day in Närke, and in Laxå.
X2 train in Laxå
Post train number 19897 from Rosersberg to Malmö Gbg with a short stop at Hallsberg post terminal
X2 train which stops here in Laxå
This X2 is a bit special, as it has dark grey doors instead of the usual grey. The doors have another system for opening and closing with buttons. My guess is that this is one of new refurbished X2 train testing on the route Västerås-Skövde.
The train has stopped but there are no passengers inside
Another post train, this time number 9845 from Rosersberg to Göteborg
This is also an Rc4P locomotive, there are totally six such locomotives that are capable of 160km/h instead of the usual 135km/h for Rc4.
MTRN train 12002 is a double X74 composition
Shortly after the departure of Y31, an MTRN train is showing up in the same direction
For a while I could see both trains at the same time, this is an example of how congested this railway is.
Train 9010 Göteborg-Borlänge
Rc4 1270 and 1302
Bergslagsleden trail is passing here
Constructed in 1782, this mansion has had a history of both private residence and hotel, now it is uninhabited as it looks
