Lillestrøm, Kjelsås, Lier (N), Drammen, Grorud

Less than a week from my one-month trip, I'm back again traveling, this time to a neighbour country - Norway
X60 at Arlanda
Post covid problems with security and long queues are now history at Arlanda
I'm heading to Oslo for a weekend trip. I still have two days left of my Interrail ticket, but to speed up the trip I'm flying. Also I'm not allowed to use the Interrail in Sweden anymore

There are normally 9 SAS flights and 6 Norwegian flights per day between Stockholm and Oslo, while there are only 2 trains 

Taking the train from the airport
BM75 at Gardemoen station

Arriving at Lillestrøm station

Hector Rail with 119 007 and 119 008

CargoNet with airplane fuel, later I will spot this train in full view
The following morning starts at Lillestrøm

The line between Lillestrøm and Oslo is used by freight trains and local commuter trains

I could have taking this train on the way back to Stockholm, unfortunately it do not stop here in Lillestrøm, instead I'll be flying back
