It's November, and it's getting dark early so I'm doing a short trip today.
Arriving at Avesta Krylbo
Dalälven river right outside the station
Train 8103 Gävle-Örebro
Train 14913 Umeå-Nässjö
Train 48365 Fliskär-Kristinehamn
Train 6159 Borlänge-Fagersta
I'm traveling only 1 stop from Avesta Krylbo to Fors
The platform is so short in Fors that even a two-car Regina train does not fit completely, all the doors are fitting though.
There is a paper industry in Fors operated by Stora Enso
This is not fog, it's coming from the paper factory and it's smells horrible
Monster cars from Stora Enso
Only 1 train more today
Train 5966 Hallsberg-Ånge
I'm not going to wait for the train, instead, I will take the bus to Avesta, once it has returned from Horndal.
Avesta municipality has made all busses free for its citizens, but it is necessary to get a special ticket that gives you the possibility for free travel. It can be obtained at the local supermarket on in Dalatrafiken app.
A bit depressing here in Fors, especially with this smell
Avesta bus station
Dalabanan passing through central Avesta
The old town in Avesta
Avesta hydropower station
Verket - an art center in Avesta
Avesta centrum station - no trains stop here during the weekends
For citizens of Avesta, there is a nearby station Avesta Krylbo
I'm taking a bus from central Avesta to Krylbo station
