 Tågab is a private train company started in 1994 with freight traffic. From 2009 the company is offering passenger train services from Karlstad to Göteborg/Falun and from 2015 from Karlstad to Stockholm. Today I'm taking the Stockholm train.
 I'm taking AB3 coach which is a mixed 1st and 2nd class coach (for each half of the car).
 Waiting for a meeting train.
 AB3 coach was built in the 60's. Today they only exist in Tågab and Snälltåget services.
