Älvsbyn, Jörn

Today I'm traveling north to Älvsbyn and Jörn with the night train.

Due to railway works, the train is taking another route through Lågsele and Vännäs instead of Sundsvall and Umeå. I will not see much of the other route though, since it will be in the middle of the night.

SJ Regional to Uppsala with Rc6 1363
Rc6 1334 from SSRT
I'm traveling in a 2nd class compartment
I've bought some warm food at Vapiano near the central station

At 6:47 on the next morning, I'm arriving at Älvsbyn

The train continues to Boden and Luleå

"Keep distance" 
It's not that difficult to keep the distance, it's hardly anyone here
I'm visiting the old railway bridge over Piteälven, now it is possible to walk here
The new railway bridge was built just next to the old one

Älvsbyn church

I'm back at the station

I'm now taking Norrtåg from Älvsbyn to Jörn
Unfortunately, the sunny weather is over for today, I will be spending my day in Jörn with rain
