Hallsberg, Arboga, Örebro, Hallsberg

This weekend I happen to visit same place two days in a row - Hallsberg. Also, I'm visiting stations of Arboga, Örebro Södra, and Kumla.
Starting day 1 (Saturday) in Hallsberg.
Hallsberg is always a place offering a lot of train photos.
Control car AFM7, which is since 2016 only used as a regular car.
Close to everything... Hallsberg is not that big.

SJ Regional to Arboga
This is probably the last time I'm taking the conventional locomotive-hauled coach train on this route. From December 2019 the route will be operated by new Stadler ER1 EMU
ER1 will only have 2nd class, so this is also the last time I can travel in 1st class on this route.

SJ Regional train between Stockholm and Eskilstuna/Arboga is using Rc6 locomotives on both ends of the train. This means that after December 2019 there will an extended rolling stock for SJ. New SJ Intercity routes will be provided with this rolling stock, one of them will be the direct service between Stockholm and Helsingborg.

Due to many accidents at the railway crossing here at Örebro Södra, it was decided to built a new pedestrian bridge.
It is still possible to cross the tracks to get to the other platform, but for crossing to the other side of the station it is necessary to use the bridge.
