Killeberg, Alvesta

I'm back in Sweden, and today, I will be checking out the Southern Main Line (Södra Stambanan) around the border with Skåne and Kronoberg regions.
Taking SJ Snabbtåg in 2nd Class Lugn (silent car), which is actually a 1st class car without a coffee corner
Staying over in Norrköping, which has some snow today
Following day arriving in Alvesta which is in Kronoberg region
Alvesta is an important railway hub for Krösatåg departing to Hässleholm, Jönköping, Värnamo and Växjö. New trains from CAF will soon replace these older X11-X14 trains
