Nybro, Trekanten, Kalmar

I'm back to Stockholm after my Interrail trip to Italy, Switzerland and Germany. Today I will travel to Kalmar with some stops on my way.
On my way from my home I pass by this art installation "Ovanlandet och Hararnas hus" by Annika Oscarsson.

I've arrived to Nybro
It has been unusually cold winter with huge amounts of snow, also here in Småland
Nybro station was once a junction point for Kalmar Railway (Emmaboda-Kalmar) and Nybro-Sävsjöströms railway (NSJ). Today there is only one railway, NSJ was dismounted in 1989.

From Wikipedia: "Nybro calls itself "The city within the Kingdom of Crystal", the latter being a region with 15 active glassworks including Kosta, Boda and Orrefors."

Old brewery

The station has a waiting hall and a cafe
My next train is this Krösatåg X11 3136 "Vicke Viking"

My next stop is Trekanten. Station closed in 1968 and re-opened in 2015.

Until recently the station building was up for sale, not sure if someone bought it.
