Väse, Munkfors, Molkom, Torrvarpsund

Today I'm travelling to Värmland and visit some of the street arts from Artscape project.
 First I stop at Strömtorp which is an old junction station where Värmlandsbanan meets Nora Bergslags Järnväg. The line to Gullspång is since 2002 used only by draisine vehicles while the line to Bofors is still used by freight trains.
 The station was called Carlskoga until 1895, and was once a more important station than nearby Degerfors. It has been disused since 1976.
 Tågab train 7032 from Kristinehamn to Göteborg.

 Moving further west to Väse station
 Väse station is still used for local services

 The station house is one of the few along this line still in place

 Tågab 7031 from Kristinehamn to Göteborg (now on western route).

 I have now reached Karlstad, where I spot the first of the street art projects. There are totally 25 house paintings around Värmland. This one is named "Ledania" from the Colombian artists

 I'm moving further north from Karlstad along Klarälvsbanan, which is now a bicycle trail. Here is Edsgatan station.
