Kälarne is one of the "large" towns along this railway line, it has around 400 inhabitans. Today the railway here has only freight services. According to a study for the new passenger service Östersund-Umeå, there would be new stops in Kälarne, Ragunda, Bispgården, Långsele and Sollefteå
75km away from Bräcke is Ragunda
A train stop is planned here as well, much due to a nearby town of Hammarstrand (6km away)
CargoNet 41919, today with 2 Traxx locomotives
185 708 and 185 709
I'm taking a walk while waiting for the other CargoNet train
