Forsmo, Näsåker, Lunde, Kramfors
One more day in Västernorrland
What a surprise...
Railway bridge at Backsjön
Green Cargo 9118 to Luleå at Selsjön
Green Cargo 64276 to Skorped at Forsmo
Hector Rail 41760 arriving from Hoting at Forsmo station

I'm following the Forsmo-Hoting railway a bit
At Näsåker the TMZ 1403 is heading back to Hoting
Hydro power station in Näsåker
Näsåker station. I almost got stuck here, when I tried to park the car next to this station. The car could not get back on the road due to snow, but thanks to the help from the locals I could be rescued.
An old steam locomotive at Näsåker. It was impossible to get closer without getting stuck again
When I'm back near Kramfors, I can spot a Norrtåg at Ådalsbanan
This part of the railway is completely new
Snarabergstunnel is 2411m long from Bollstabruk to Västeraspby
At Gustavsvik, south of Kramfors I'm hoping to spot Höga Kusten bridge
Höga Kusten bridge is one of longest suspension bridges in Scandinavia and Europe
Monument commemorating the Ådalen shootings in 1931
During a protest organised by the unions, five people were shot to death by the police
