Ljusne, Iggesund

I'm back in Sweden, and today I will do a trip along the East coast railway (Ostkustbanan). 
View from Stockholm Central in the morning
X55 trains are operating the line from Stockholm to Sundsvall and Umeå

Leaving before 9:00, breakfast is included in the 1st class

Arriving at Söderhamn station. Today I'm visiting Ljusne and Iggesund. These two stations are not served by SJ, instead, I will have to use the X-trafik trains and buses.

Ostkustbanan was partially rebuilt in the 90's and Söderhamn got a new station and a new location in 1995.

The old railway through Söderhamn can still be viewed, now as a pedestrian and bicycle path

Once the railway was passing here
Some parts of the railway are still in place

It is almost the middle of January, I'm in the north part of Sweden and there is no snow or ice. Here is the only place I found a bit of ice.
