Oxelösund, Silinge, Sparreholm, Mölnbo

Today I will travel through Sörmland region by car.
First, Oxelösund and Femörefortet battery.
Oxelösund is located at the Baltic sea coast
From Wikipedia: "Femöre battery (Femörefortet) is a facility previously operated by the Swedish Coastal Artillery arm of Swedish Armed Forces. Also known as "Battery OD", it is located only a short trip south-east of Oxelösund on the Swedish east coast, and is blasted into the rock on the Femöre peninsula. The battery was part of a series of similar facilities built during the 1960s and 1970s as a defence against potential attacks from the Soviet Union. The Femöre battery was decommissioned in 1997, and was scheduled for dismantling in 2003. Due to a local interest group, large parts of the fort were instead preserved and is today used as a museum. Since 2003, the battery has been open for regular tours during the summer."

Former Oxelösund station and Sankt Botvids church

Oxelösund railway association FSVJ has some old cars from the time when the railway here was operated by TGOJ
Entrance to the church

The church is built of concrete and it was constructed in 1957

Shortly after Oxelösund is the station of Stjärnholm
There are two buildings, this one was probably the house of station keeper
According to the news in the local press, there is a decision that the station shall be demolished, due to that it is located too close to the railway.

When passing by Nyköping, I could spot this bird

Skavsta is a former military airport from 1940, named F11. Since 1998 it is privately owned, and it is mainly used by the low cost airlines. There are plans to construct a high speed railway nearby and a station.
Here is flight WZZ975 to Katowice with an Airbus A320-232
