Gnesta, Vingåker

Today I'm travelling along the Västra Stambanan by car making some stops along the way in Södermanland region.
 First thing I see is this animal. When the fox saw me, it escaped to the forest probably saving it's life from passing trains.
 I'm outside Gnesta, and there are plenty of animals here.
 Morning departure of Snälltåget from Stockholm to Malmö is passing here.
 This train has 8 coaches
 Vectron locomotive

 Gnesta water treatment plant
 Gnesta water tower
 X2 in double traction

 X2 is tilting on this curved part of the railway
 Note that only passenger coaches are tilting, not the driving unit

 Railcare/Three T TMX 1013 from 1961

 This locomotive has "Grand Nordic" livery
 Later I see this train at Stjärnhov
 TMX has top speed of 120km/h, so it has to let faster trains pass
 It's very dry for this time of the year
 I'm near Hålbonäs waiting for Blå tåget

 SJ Regional

 Blå tåget from Göteborg
 Locomotive is Hector Rail 141.001 "Ripley"

 Restaurant coach
 Also here I see TMX

 Last stop for today is Vingåker. Gröna tåget is here hauled by Hector Rail 143.064 "Bifrost", former Rc3 locomotive

 Some coaches are green
 Some are blue

 Ticket machine at Vingåker in use
 X74 in double traction

 X2 in double traction

 Bus station for local lines
